According the The Athletic’s Shams Charania, the National Basketball Players Association is expecting their members to continue to receive their salary at regular intervals during the NBA’s hiatus.

The NBA suspended the 2019-20 season in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19. It is unclear when the league will resume play and there are several details to cover before players return to the court—a reality that Charania covered in a follow-up tweet.

The NBA announced the suspension of play on March 11.
