After nearly two months without any form of basketball, some NBA teams began to trickle back into their facilities on Friday. With some states beginning to ease up on stay-at-home orders caused by the coronavirus pandemic, the league has started to allow players to participate in individual workouts at facilities.

While players have to work out while social distancing, and exhibit a lot of care, safety, and sanitation, they don’t all need to be tested for the coronavirus.

A handful of Cleveland Cavaliers players partook in voluntary workouts on Friday, including Kevin Love and Larry Nance Jr.

Each team seems to be handling things differently, based on the situation in their state, the availability of testing, and organizational philosophy.

There’s no word yet on when the Golden State Warriors might re-open their facilities. The Bay Area has had some of the strictest (and therefore most effective) quarantine guidelines and laws, although this week California Governor Gavin Newsom entered the second stage of his four stage plan to re-open the state. It features some relaxed rules for companies to conduct business, so there’s a chance that the Warriors may be able to open the doors of their facilities sooner rather than later.

For now, we wait. But basketball is slowly making a return, at least in some form. That’s exciting.
