Doomsday Provision Detailed to Players by NBPA in Light of COVID-19

As the uncertainty surrounding the NBA persists in light of the coronavirus spread, the National Basketball Players Association provided players with the terms of a doomsday provision included in the league’s CBA.

According to the collective bargaining agreement, the provision can allow NBA owners to opt against paying players a percentage of each of their salaries if the rest of the season is lost due to the global pandemic. The CBA includes a clause known as the force majeure, which can only be activated in dire scenarios, including epidemics, war, or natural disaster.

The next scheduled paycheque for players is fully expected to come by Sunday.

Per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, there has been no discussion around the league and the NBPA to trigger the force majeure provision at this time. The hope remains that the season can be resumed at some point and the postseason will be played later in the Summer.

Commissioner Adam Silver plans for the league to miss a minimum of 30 days.
