Several players on at least three NBA teams have already taken the most definitive step towards taking themselves off the NBA’s very robust testing schedule: getting the COVID-19 vaccine. According to the latest reporting from ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne and Adrian Wojnarowski, several members of the Los Angeles Lakers will join members of the Atlanta Hawks, New Orleans Pelicans, and Portland Trail Blazers, in getting their coronavirus vaccine.

Due to many legal issues, including HIPPA, teams will not say which players get the coronavirus vaccine. Some players on other teams, such as Jusuf Nurkic and Enes Kanter of the Portland Trail Blazers, posted they had received the vaccine on their personal Twitter accounts. So, we won’t know about any Lakers players or staff members getting the vaccine unless they are the ones to tell us themselves.

The Lakers flew back to Los Angeles last night after their loss in New Orleans. Now they get to stay in Los Angeles for the next week, starting with a game on Thursday against the Philadelphia 76ers.
