Michael Jordan backs the NBA’s COVID-19 vaccine protocols.
The NBA does not require players to receive the vaccine. However, unvaccinated players will not be paid if they miss a game due to local vaccine mandates.
"I am total in unison with the league," 58-year-old Jordan said on NBC’s Today.
Jordan, who now owns the Charlotte Hornets, added that he is a firm believer in science.
“I'm going to stick with that and hopefully, everybody abides by whatever the league sets the rules,” Jordan said.
The Charlotte Hornets are 100% vaccinated, according to The Associated Press.
The former NBA star’s comments come as some high-profile athletes have expressed reluctance to get vaccinated.
On Tuesday, the Brooklyn Nets announced that Kyrie Irving won’t be allowed to play or practice with the team until he’s vaccinated.
