• According to Jeff Zilgitt of USA Today, NBA owners are to approve player-resting rules to restrict healthy players sitting out games.

    Back in April, NBA commissioner Adam Silver said, “There is an expectation among partners that teams are going to act in appropriate ways, (and) find, as I said, that right balance between resting on one hand and obligations to fans and partners on the other.” Not only that but the NBA is doing what it can to tweak the regular season schedule to promote health and prevent injury by reducing back-to-backs and attempting to eliminate the dreaded four games in five nights for teams. This rule will be a tough one to govern as a team can throw out a fake injury as the reason for a star to ride the pine for a game but it is a step in the right direction.
