The NBA will allow the home teams in Orlando to submit content and graphics incorporating social justice messages to be displayed on the in-game venue video boards.

After player warmups and immediately before the national anthem for the first four days of the restart, the NBA will run a social justice feature on the video board, Adrian Wojnarowski also notes.

Along with these social justice video messages, some players will be wearing league-approved social justice messages on their jerseys for the season restart.

Some players might also be wearing their own social justice shirts for pregame warmups.

It was recently reported that there was also a growing consensus for NBA players to kneel during the national anthem in a show of solidarity against racial injustice and police brutality.

As seen in the scrimmage games in Orlando, all three courts on the Disney campus have “Black Lives Matter” painted on the sideline.
