About 70% of eligible NBA players have now received COVID-19 booster shots, according to ESPN.

This number meets 350 total players -- more than half of a league that has a total athlete count typically hovering around 500.

For non-boosted players, there is the requirement to undergo daily coronavirus testing through the All-Star break in mid-February. The league is also restricting those players' attendance at large indoor gatherings, bars, and clubs, per the report.

A total of 314 players total have entered the league's health and safety protocols this season, with 252 entering in December and 53 entering so far in January, via ESPN.

NBA has suspended 11 games this season due to COVID outbreaks in the teams.
