The NBA is not concerned about the restart of the season, even though some players are not in favor of that plan, per Adrian Wojnarowski and Ramona Shelburne of ESPN.

The general consensus by the owners, team representatives and the players is that the season will be resumed in Orlando, Florida.

“ESPN’s reporting with players, agents, the NBPA and league officials over the weekend found no indication that the NBA’s return is in jeopardy — or that there’s even a significant group of players ready to sit out.

There are expected to be some players who decide not to play, sources said, but so far there’s no indication that it’s enough to compromise the league’s plans to return, which have already been approved by the owners (29-1) and team representatives (28-0),” Shelburne and Wojnarowski report.

ESPN story with @RamonaShelburne: NBPA’s Michele Roberts tells ESPN the players spent weekend discussing how they could best use “our obvious influence … to make sure we enhance and move this movement forward” rather than distracting from it.
