MANILA, Philippines—Staying indoors may be seen as a damper to physical activities, but the NBA begs to differ.

The league launched Jr. NBA at Home workout program where boys and girls can still do some basketball drills even inside their homes while the world is on lockdown due to COVID-19 pandemic.
