The NBA’s new player participation rules focus primarily on star players — someone who has been an All-Star or on the All-NBA team in any of the prior three seasons.

NEW YORK — The NBA took steps Wednesday to try to ensure that its star players appear in more games, particularly nationally televised matchups and the in-season tournament that is being added this year.

The league’s board of governors approved a new player participation policy that will take effect for this upcoming season, replacing the player resting policy that was implemented prior to the 2017-18 season.
