Nigeria international and Orlando Magic power forward Al-Farouq Aminu feels that having already protested against racism over the years the NBA needs to make even more of a statement. “We have already taken action, as we’ve had ‘I can’t breathe shirts'” the 29-year-old told BBC Sport Africa, referring to the stance of players in 2014 following the death or Eric Garner at the hands of police in New York.

Al Farouq-Aminu: “We’ve seen guys be very vocal about the matters. I think what a lot of people forget is that we had a black president, we had a black Attorney General and we had let’s say many of the best basketball players in the world are black. All those different things happened after the Black Lives first happened and the movement first started. So I don’t believe that these gestures are 100% the remedy, obviously it is nice to bring awareness to different things like that but after a while you have to get the job done.”

When I asked him about the chances of Isaac and Al-Farouq Aminu playing when the season resumes, Weltman answered, “They have not played basketball in a long, long time. So it’s more than just saying, ‘Your knee is strengthened.’ It’s a matter of reconditioning and making sure that we’re not putting any of our players at risk for further injuries. So we’ll see as we go along how we get there. But I’m not prepared to apply any timeline or anything like that at this point. They’ve got a lot of work ahead of them.”
