Plans to paint ‘Black Lives Matter’ on courts when the season resumes on 31 July are being discussed by the NBA.
NBA players have reportedly been given permission to use words promoting social justice in place of their names on uniforms.
The season’s remaining games will be played at Disney World in Florida.
National Basketball Players Association president Chris Paul, an Oklahoma City Thunder guard, told ESPN: “We’re just trying to continue to shed light on the different social justice issues that guys around our league continue to talk about day in and day out.
“People are saying that social justice will be off of everybody’s mind in Orlando. With these jerseys, it doesn’t go away.”
