NBA: Players will not be randomly tested for marijuana

NBA players will not be subject to random marijuana testing this season, according to a Players Association memo shared Wednesday and obtained by ESPN.

The agreement between the NBA and the NBPA is a repeat of a policy that began with the Orlando restart in 2020 and continued through the 2020-21 season and remains again amid League and union COVID-19 protocols.

Testing will continue for “drugs of abuse and performance-enhancing substances,” the memo states.

Marijuana is still prohibited in the League’s collective bargaining agreement, but negotiations between the League and the Players Association relaxed the restrictions. The NBA and the NBPA have agreed on important freedoms for vaccinated players, but remain strict on protocols for players who have not been vaccinated.
