NBA commissioner Adam Silver has said that fans should consider the All-Star Game weekend a “television-only event”.
There will be no NBA functions [for fans] to participate in. We appreciate their support and hope they'll watch our All-Star Game on television, Adam Silver, NBA Commissioner.
Meanwhile, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms has discouraged fans from traveling to the city for the game.
She has also asked bars and other entertainment venues not to throw parties.
The players taking part in the game will be subject to the same health protocols the league has operated under this season.
The NBA All-Star Game will take place at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta on March 7 without fans in attendance.
