"As we have said, the health and safety of everyone connected to our game will be top priority," said Orlando Magic CEO Alex Martins. "Our goal is to make everyone feel comfortable that extensive safety precautions have been taken for the return to Amway Center. We continue to work through protocols as outlined by the NBA, CDC, and local health officials and will use the preseason as a trial to assess and evaluate safety measures.”
Orlando began individual player workouts on Tuesday at the AdventHealth Practice Facility at the Amway Center. Friday marked the first day of training camp.
