NBA players may come back to team gyms on Friday in the US states where local authorities have loosened or did not impose “stay-at-home” restrictions in response to COVID-19, the basketball association said late Saturday.

It stated that only personal workouts were allowed rather than team training.

“Any workouts that take place would be voluntary and be limited to individual sessions only,” the statement on its website said.

Georgia and Oklahoma are the states which have started to loosen stay-at-home rules. Florida is also expected to ease the order soon, despite warnings from health officials.
