Jul 2, 2020, 12:21 PM | Updated: 12:23 pm

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The first photos of The Walt Disney World Resorts NBA practice set up have been revealed. In a tweet Friday, the NBA released several photos of team full practice floors being set up in a large conference room.

While Disney houses three arenas, two of which will feature broadcast games, practice space was a question. With 22 teams remaining, and games being played every other day, floor space will be at a premium.

In the tweet released from the NBA, the photos show individual team floors being shipped in and installed in the ballroom. The Indiana Pacers home court and the Miami Heat floor are stationed alongside one another. The dismantled Orlando Magic floor is also pictured.

Teams will begin traveling to Orlando beginning July 7-9 where they will undergo training camp. The regular season resumes on July 30 and will feature eight games a day between the two courts. Each team will play eight “seeding games” to determine the final playoff picture.

The first round of the playoffs begin August 17 and the league aims to have the season concluded no later than October 12.

NBA Testing Numbers

Along with photos of the floor, the NBA released new COVID-19 testing numbers among its players. On June 22, players were required to begin returning to their host cities for testing.

According to the NBA, nine additional players have tested positive for COVID-19 since returning to their practice facilities. In total, 25 of the 351 players tested have returned a positive result.

Additionally, 10 team staff members received positive tests of 884 tested.

The percentage of players testing positive is just over seven percent. According to Johns Hopkins University, the nation’s positive test rate sits at a nearly identical 7.1 percent.

According to the release, “Any player, coach, or team staff member who tested positive will remain in self-isolation until they satisfy public health protocols for discontinuing isolation and have been cleared by a physician.”
