NBA players will receive their full scheduled salary disbursement when payday rolls around next week, according to multiple reports Thursday.
Players are scheduled to be paid on Wednesday, April 15, which would have been the final day of the regular season.
The NBA suspended play indefinitely on the night of March 11, shortly after it was learned Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert had tested positive for the coronavirus. The missed games have not been canceled officially.
The league and the players association reportedly have been in discussions regarding withholding player pay in the event regular-season games were canceled, and if that happens, players likely will have to pay the money back. The amount owed would be determined by a formula based on each player’s team and his own salary.
Commissioner Adam Silver said earlier this week that no decision would be made about restarting the season until May 1 — the next scheduled payday.
