ATLANTA (CBS46) -- The National Basketball Association told teams that it is targeting May 8 as the earliest possible date to allow "limited, individual workouts" in cities that won't be under stay-at-home orders and other restrictions.

If the league goes forward with the May 8 plan, multiple rules would be attached to team's opening a facility, including:

  • No more than four players would be permitted at a facility at any one time. 
  • No head or assistant coaches could participate.
  • Group activity remains prohibited, including practices or scrimmages.
  • Players remain prohibited from using non-team facilities such as public health clubs, fitness centers, or gyms.

The Atlanta Hawks would qualify to go forward with this plan, but the team has not made any announcements yet on its plans.

The NBA said it would work with teams to find alternate arrangements in cities with government restrictions.
