NBA Commissioner Adam Silver on the league’s new player participation policy

The NBA is implementing a new player participation policy for the 2023-24 season onward, aiming to address the issue of load management around the league. Speaking to the media soon after the formal adoption of the policy, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver emphasized that this change is driven by a desire to prioritize the fans’ experience and maintain the integrity of the league’s 82-game schedule.

The new policy, developed collaboratively with input from various stakeholders including team owners, management, coaches, the National Basketball Players Association, and players, focuses on ensuring that healthy star players are available to play and that teams do not engage in prolonged player shutdowns.
