With an increasing number of positive COVID-19 cases, NBA thought about an alternative solution.

The Athletic’s Mike Vorkunov reports that NBA has thought about letting asymptomatic COVID-19 positive players continue playing and avoid protocol. However, this decision wasn’t made.

Instead, NBA will increase daily testing and face mask use for players and staff during the holiday season.

The NBA and National Basketball Players Association agreed to elevate testing for two weeks starting December 26. Players and staff will be tested on game days except for those who received their booster shot 14-plus days earlier or recently recovered from the coronavirus.

52 players, Indiana Pacers coach Rick Carlisle, Sacramento Kings coach Alvin Gentry and Toronto Raptors vice-chairman and president Masai Ujiri have gone into health and safety protocols in December. 22 players entered protocols on Wednesday and Thursday alone.
