As the City of San Francisco entered the next phase of its coronavirus reopening plan on Monday, the Warriors moved forward with the opening of their practice facility for voluntary individual workouts, reports Anthony Slater of The Athletic (Twitter link).
The Warriors will adhere to the NBA’s health and safety protocols as they get players back into the practice facility, conducting temperature checks on anyone who enters the building and ensuring that no more than four players are on the premises at a time. According to Slater, about five players showed up for workouts on Monday as the facility reopened.
As Slater explains (via Twitter), the Warriors still aren’t expecting to be part of the NBA’s plan for resuming the 2019/20 season this summer. Still, the team and its players want to stay active and begin summer training programs. Holding practices and scrimmages could also benefit the young squad if and when the league eventually allows group activities.
The Bulls, Pistons, and Spurs are now the only three NBA teams that have yet to reopen their practice facilities. Chicago intends to do so this Wednesday and Detroit continues to tentatively target June 12. San Antonio’s plans remain unclear.
