The NBA won’t allow players to wear “ninja-style headwear” this season.
The NBA notified teams in May that the headbands wouldn’t be a part of this season’s approved uniforms.
The NBA’s competition committee discussed the headwear as part of its meetings in Chicago on Monday. A source told ESPN that some members expressed concerns on safety, including the looseness of the headwear.
