Sixers Set to Open Doors to Begin Holding Voluntary Workouts
Members of the Sixers can begin participating in limited voluntary workouts at the 76ers Training Complex in Camden, NJ, the team confirmed on Monday.
The NBA began allowing teams to reopen practice facilities on May 8, given they met the safety guidelines in their corresponding state for the COVID-19 pandemic. There are still no group or team workouts, and workouts at this time are voluntary, with strickt safeguards in place in accordance with NBA guidelines.
New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy announced earlier today that major sports leagues were given the go-ahead to begin training.
"Professional sports teams in NJ may return to training and even competition – if their leagues choose to move in that direction," Murphy tweeted today. "We have been in constant discussions with teams about necessary protocols to protect the health and safety of players, coaches, and personnel.The status of the NBA season remains up in the air."
The Sixers are 65 games into the 2019-20 season, with a record of 39-26, currently the No 6 seed in the East.
