Article Summary:

A player who is fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and who is entering the team environment for the first time needs to return at least one negative result from a polymerase chain reaction test facilitated by the team before interacting with other players and Tier 1 staffers, according to NBA protocols obtained by ESPN’s Bobby Marks.

An unvaccinated player must return two negative tests before returning to the facility and participating in individual workouts where no other player is present. If the player returns two more negative rapid molecular tests, he could then be cleared to interact with teammates and staff.

Sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski that after Simmons’ surprise return to the Sixers before Monday’s preseason game, Simmons took a COVID-19 test facilitated by the team, thus starting his onboarding process.
