NBA players who don’t want to play in restart reportedly will not be punished

With all of the tests and protocols the league introduces, restarting the league in Orlando poses risks to player health - and some NBA players do not want to play and take that risk. Others only want to lace up their shoes when more is done about social and racist injustice.
These players can choose to stay home from the restart and will not be penalized by the team or the league - but they will sacrifice payment - reports Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. He adds that the NBA and the National Basketball Players' Association are currently negotiating the terms for this.

Sources: As NBA and NBPA set the terms for the return-to-play plan today, some players as a group are discussing whether restarting the season in the Orlando bubble is a good idea. Several dozen players have taken part in a conference call to discuss the last 24 hours.

The fact that there are players in a conference call who talk about it shows that it is not just one or two people. The league and the union have found a sensible solution that allows players who don't want to play to stay at home.

The NBA and NBPA are expected to agree on a stipulation that players do not have to restart the season or practice discipline to stay at home, sources told ESPN. The players would lose part of the salary for the missed games.

The NBA and NBPA are nearing completion of the points required to reach a final agreement on the parameters of a return to the game. Some hesitant players have discussed a number of return issues, including family concerns, COVID-19, social justice, and more.

This is right for the league. Players should not be forced to participate in this restart in Orlando.
How much risk someone wants to take is a personal decision. For a player with a child who is at risk in some way and who is at higher risk of the disease, they may want to take a much lower risk than a single 22-year-old. There are also players with conditions that pose a higher risk for COVID-19. You shouldn't be forced to play. Ultimately, it should be up to the individual player to take the risk, and if not, he should be able to stay at home without fear of being punished.
However, it's fair to say that they shouldn't be paid for not playing.
We'll see how many players are willing to forego their salary and stay at home - and whether that includes making important contributions to competing teams (where there may be peer pressure to play and track the ring). Maybe it's just a few players, maybe it's far more than we expect.
It is a personal decision for every man, and it should be that way.
NBA players who are reportedly reluctant to play on restart will not be penalized because they originally appeared on NBCSports.com
