With four games called off this week already and more teams dealing with virus-related issues, the NBA and the National Basketball Players Association have enacted additional Tuesday in the hope of keeping the season going safely.

Among the new policies: for "at least the next two weeks," the league and union said Tuesday, players and team staff will have to remain at their residence when in their home markets and prohibited from leaving their hotels or having outside guests when on the road.
