Following a series of rumors, the NBA has now reportedly banned players from wearing “The Ninja” headwear. Reported by sports insider Adrian Wojnarowski, the league is officially prohibiting players from wearing the headwraps due to potential safety concerns.

The league’s Competition Committee is now discussing the matter in meetings after teams raised concerns regarding size, length and how they are tied. If the committee deems not risk, it is possible for the reinstatement of the headwear accessory. “The Ninja” headbands were first introduced last season and marked an interesting evolution in on-court style in the NBA.

Stay tuned for more details.
