NBA Is Reportedly Considering New Rule For Resting Players
In the NBA's continuous effort to address the load management issue, league officials are scheduled to vote on a new rule this week.
According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, the NBA Board of Governors is poised to vote shortly on a policy that would prohibit teams
from resting two elite players in the same game. "Many league discussions over the last 1-2 years have centered on stars playing more," he adds.
According to current talks, a "star" is any player who has made an All-Star or All-NBA squad in the previous three seasons.
The NBA and its fans have grown more frustrated as big-name players sit out primetime regular-season games to rest for the playoffs.
Although some consider it impossible to govern what constitutes load management or a player being injured.
There's no denying that over the course of an 82-game season, things mount up.
But, with the league's regular season growing less and less important with each passing year, Adam Silver and company are doing everything they can to find a solution.
