The NBA and the NBPA (Nation Basketball Players Association) have finalized the terms in the revised collective bargaining agreement for the league’s restart in Orlando. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski delivered an update on the negotiations between the two sides on Tuesday.

Prior to the finalization of the terms, Wojnarowski revealed that a slight change was crafted to the policy regarding replacing players that test positive for coronavirus. The new guidelines require that if a team plans to replace a player who has tested positive, that action must be completed no later than seven days after the confirmed positive player resumes training.
Outside of the revised CBA, the NBA and NBPA agreed on a re-tooled insurance policy that players can utilize if they make the trip to Orlando for the restart.
