On Saturday, the NBPA held a screening in the weight room of the Los Angeles Clippers’ practice facility, administering EKGs and blood pressure tests, echocardiograms, a consultation with multiple physicians and cardiologists, and orthopedic evaluations to more than 40 former players.

The extensive testing, which can take several weeks to schedule and get results under normal circumstances, lasted roughly an hour-and-a-half to two hours, with results on the spot. The players’ association had screened more than 100 players heading into Saturday and the impact of the players’ association being proactive, not reactive, in assessing disease and illness in retired players has been significant.
