Beginning with January 15, any NBA player, who is not fully vaccinated, will be incapable to enter Canada to play games in Toronto, via Shams Charania of The Athletic.

The Canadian government will require all individuals entering Canada to be fully vaccinated, per the report.

If a player can’t show proof of full vaccination and misses a game in Toronto, he would be subject to reduction of compensation and may be subject to fine, suspension, or other action, NBA informs teams today.

As Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports, teams must furnish the league office with a list of unvaccinated players by Friday. The NBA says that 97 percent of its players are vaccinated, and sources say more than 60 percent have received booster shots.

Moreover, any unvaccinated NBA player with temporary VISA status, leaving the country, will be unable to re-enter the United States, via ESPN. For example, a player would be unable to re-enter after playing in Canada or traveling outside the U.S. on All-Star weekend.

This season, the Toronto Raptors are coming back to their home city after spending last season playing in Florida.

Regardless of vaccination status, all players must pass a PCR test before traveling to Toronto this season, according to the NBA's health and safety protocols for the 2021-22 campaign.
