Thunder practice facility remains closed as some teams reopen

The Thunder practice facility remained closed Friday, the first day some NBA teams were allowed to reopen their facilities to players for voluntary workouts. 

The Thunder will provide an update once it does open its practice facility, a team spokesman told The Oklahoman

The Cavaliers and Trail Blazers allowed players to return Friday, according to multiple reports. Other teams haven't committed to a date, or are waiting for stay-at-home orders to be lifted. 

Thunder general manager Sam Presti said last week that he was not committed to reopening Friday

Practices are still prohibited even as some teams reopen. No more than four players will be allowed at team facilities at the same time. Only one staff member can be present, but not the head coach or a first-row assistant coach. Every person who enters a team facility must have their temperature taken. 

It's been almost two months since the NBA season was suspended.
