The NBA will begin opening practice facilities across the league on May 8, but the New Orleans Pelicans will not open their facility at that time, according to ESPN’s Andrew Lopez.
The league attempted to open practice facilities on May 1, but teams pushed back on the idea and now the NBA will reopen facilities in areas with less restricting stay-at-home guidelines.
Here is the report from The Athletic and Stadium’s Shams Charania
Other guidelines when teams reopen practice facilities are the prohibition of group activity and players cannot use fitness centers, public health clubs or gyms.
New Orleans will not be a part of the reopening on Friday
The Houston Rockets, Portland Trailblazers and Denver Nuggets are the only three NBA teams currently planning to reopen their practice facilities.
