The NBA has sent a memo to teams notifying them that their staff can now bring guests to Orlando’s bubble, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Coaches and other members of a team’s staff were previously prohibited to have any guests in the bubble, unlike players and referees.

The memo also mentions that no more than 10 staff guests per team are allowed in the bubble. Each guest will have to undergo a 7-day quarantine upon arrival in the campus.

Denver Nuggets coach Mike Malone was highly critical of the NBA banning coaches and other team staff to have their family in the bubble. “Shame on you NBA,” Malone had said before Game 2 vs. the Los Angeles Clippers while characterizing the league’s decision as “criminal in nature.”
