Report: Warriors need to be vaccinated to play home games


Any Warriors players who are not vaccinated against COVID-19 reportedly will not be allowed to play home games at Chase Center.

The Athletic's Shams Charania reported Wednesday, citing sources, that unvaccinated NBA players in markets with local requirements like San Francisco won't be allowed to enter home arenas or facilities for games or team activities conducted there unless approved medically or for religious reasons.

On Aug. 12, San Francisco mandated an order that went into effect beginning at midnight on Aug. 20 that indoor events with more than 1,000 attendees are required to show proof of full vaccination to enter a venue, unless they have a medical or religious exemption.

This of course could play a vital role in the Warriors' roster decisions throughout the season.

Players for the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets also will have to abide by the same rules for their home games. Visiting players are exempt from local vaccination requirements.
