It appears the NBA hiatus could have a significant impact on players' paychecks. Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

The NBA has not committed to paying players in full beyond April 1 during the suspension of play, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski

The next checks are scheduled to be issued on April 1. The following payment would be due on April 15, and a league memo sent to teams on Friday said it would provide “additional guidance” on the April 15 checks. Force Majeure language in the collective bargaining agreement allows for a percentage of contracts to be withheld in extreme circumstances.

The NBA and the Players Association have discussed the issue, Wojnarowski adds. The NBA can withhold 1/92.6 percent of a player’s salary per canceled game — about 1 percent of their annual salary.
