While details are still being finalised, players would compete from their respective locations/home gyms in accordance with the league's isolation protocols.

The NBA last featured a H-O-R-S-E competition when it was introduced at the 2009 All-Star Weekend. It lasted just two seasons, with Kevin Durant winning both titles in back-to-back seasons.

Prior to that, it last appeared during the 1977-78 season.

Amid the suspension of the 2019-20 season due to the global coronavirus pandemic, players have found new ways to compete, with a 16-player NBA 2K tournament which tipped off on Saturday (AEST).
