NBA teams are expecting the league office to issue guidelines around June 1 that will allow franchises to start recalling players who have left the markets of their clubs to return as a first step toward a formal ramp-up for a season resumption, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Zach Lowe.

Wojnarowski adds that around June 1, teams will be allowed to expand their workouts that are already underway with in-market players.

The NBA, as well as the rest of the sports world was brought to a halt on March 12 due to the COVID-19 global pandemic.
