Players who have not been vaccinated against COVID-19 are not allowed to play in Toronto

NBA players who have not been vaccinated against COVID-19 will be banned from playing in Toronto from January 15, according to a league memo obtained by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Tuesday’s announcement regarding games in Toronto was part of a league memo detailing travel restrictions for unvaccinated players. Canadian public minister Marco Mendicino announced the ban on unvaccinated professional and amateur athletes in November

Any player who has not been vaccinated and who chooses to leave the country will now be “not able to re-enter the United States,” according to ESPN. The policy will reportedly be in effect before February’s All-Star Weekend, a customary time for international travel for players across the league.
