The NBA is following the Warriors' lead.

The league issued a memo Thursday notifying all teams that they must shut down their training and practice facilities to players and staff by Friday, according to multiple national reports.

Golden State stopped its players from using Chase Center facilities at midnight Monday.

"We're in a little bit of a different spot because we're shut down," Warriors general manager Bob Myers told reporters on a Tuesday afternoon conference call. "For a couple days, we were thinking about how we best utilize our facility, how we best guide our players on their training, on their interactions, on the players who are hurt and rehabbing.

"But yesterday was the last day we were operational on a very low level. We had very, very few people (here). That's now moot."
