The Nuggets Jump at Chance to Get Back to Work
On the same day Denver allows its "stay-at-home" order to expire, the Denver Nuggets are getting back to work.
The NBA announced in April that they would begin relaxing restrictions on teams on May 8. The Nuggets are one of 3 teams that will be opening up facilities. The Daily Camera is reporting that the Nuggets' practice facility will be open to players for individual workouts.
The NBA is keeping strict guidelines on arenas and practice facilities. No more than four players are allowed in any facility at any time. If the player is doing an individual workout, only one team staff member can be present. Any and all group activities are still prohibited. Players are also not allowed to use any non-team facilities like fitness centers or health clubs.
Group activities remains prohibited, including practices or scrimmages.
Many team executives have been clamoring for the chance to get players back into their facilities, which they believe to be among the safest possible environments around the pandemic.
