At what point do they scrap the whole thing and just prepare for next season?

Malcolm Brogdon and Nikola Jokic makes 5 players. That's about 1% of the league.
Looks like the NBA is going to continue, with its plans to play.

Now what happens if 2% of the players get it, while they're in the bubble? That would be 9 additional players.

Reported so far:
Kings - Hield, Parker, Len
Nuggets - Jokic
Pacers - Brogdon
Suns - 2 unidentified players

We probably hear more in the coming days since mandatory testing started yesterday.

This is what the delay was for. They want to make sure everyone's cleared before entering the bubble and relatively in game shape once the league restarts.

If everyone is being tested before the Bubble, then the only time that I see future problems, is when the families come in, on August 30th. Other than that, it would have to be a weird breakout, from one of the Disney Personnel.

I'd say when approximately a third of the league gets it. Otherwise, it's full speed ahead.

Add Derrick Jones, Jr. of the Miami Heat to the list.

The next week is make or break time, friends. Think of how we live and die with each playoff game or even game with playoff seeding implications. I know it’s hard to get into it, but all of the testing results and responses to them now are just as important to our chances for another title.

What's with the calls to scrap the plan after every positive test? This is exactly what the plan was. Find the handful of guys with the vurus and separate them ahead of getting into the bubble. No shot they cancel the season

Willie Cauley Stein is not joining the Mavs in Orlando, per Shams. Trey Burke also signed with the Mavs.

When are they supposed to leave for the bubble? How many times do they get tested before then?

Hopefully this amount doesn't happen, after they get in the Bubble.

NBA Disney World rules revealed: Details of how the bubble will work as league plans to resume play in Orlando
By Colin Ward-Henninger & Jack Maloney | June 23, 2020

https://www.cbssports.com/nba/news/nba-disney-world-rules-revealed-details-of-how-the-bubble-will-work-as-league-plans-to-resume-play/
June 30-July 7: In-market training camps
Individual workouts will be mandatory at this point, but team workouts will still be prohibited. At this point, head coaches will be allowed to participate.

July 7-11: Teams travel to Orlando
Teams will take either a bus or chartered flight to Orlando, and once they arrive, everyone will have to stay in their rooms until they test negative for COVID-19 twice.

July 9-29: Training camps in Orlando
At this point, teams may begin group workouts and practices. There will be regular COVID-19 testing, and players will be expected to remain on campus. If a player leaves, they will be subject to extra testing, as well as a 10-14-day quarantine period.

Starting on the 22nd, teams will begin playing scrimmages against other teams staying in their hotel. Each team will have three scrimmages.

July 30-Aug. 14: Seeding games
Each team will play eight "regular season" seeding games. Once teams are eliminated, they will immediately depart from the bubble environment.

OK. So in the next 12 days, how many times do they need to get tested? What if any of the players get infected before July 7? What if a player gets infected on July 6? Can he still follow to Orlando after he gets cleared?

EDIT: Never mind.

Poor man's Duncan Robinson. Sixers needed shooting/spacing.
