Unvaccinated players in the NBA will not be paid for home games they miss.
They say about 90 percent of NBA players have been vaccinated, but there are still people like Kyrie Irving of the Brooklyn Nets, Michael Porter Jr. of the Denver Nuggets, Andrew Wiggins of the Golden State Warriors, Bradley Beal of the Washington Wizards, Jonathan Isaac of the Orlando Magic they are refusing the COVID-19 vaccine.
The NBA League and the Players’ Union (NBPA) have reached an agreement that players who do not follow the guidelines of local authorities and are not vaccinated will not be able to play games, and therefore will not be paid.
For example, Kyrie Irving could lose 381,000 dollars per game and we will see what everything will look like when the season officially starts on October 19, 2021.
“That’s on Kyrie, and that’s his personal decision,” BrooklynNets forward Kevin Durant said. “What he does is not on us to speculate what may be happening, but we trust in Kyrie. I expect us to have our whole team at some point.”
