    NBA Board of Governors approves five rules changes

    LAS VEGAS -- The NBA Board of Governors approved five rules changes for the upcoming 2013-14 season, the league announced Thursday.

    Instant replay may now be used:

    • When reviewing a block/charge play to determine whether the defender was inside or outside the restricted area, officials will now be permitted to reverse a charge call, or uphold a blocking call, when the defender was outside the restricted area but was not set when the offensive player began his upward shooting motion.
    • To determine whether an off-ball foul occurred before or after a player has started his shooting motion on a successful shot attempt, or before or after the ball was released on a throw-in.
    • During the review of any instant replay situation to permit the officials to assess the appropriate penalties of any unsportsmanlike and unnecessary acts (e.g. flagrant fouls) that are observed during the instant replay reviews.

    Additional rules modifications:

    • On clear path to the basket fouls, it will no longer be considered a clear path foul if at any point before the foul is committed, the defender who commits the foul is positioned ahead of the offensive player in the frontcourt.
    • A team on offense will lose possession if its player leaves the floor and does not immediately return to the floor, unless he is injured, attempting to save the ball or in other extenuating circumstances.

    Each of these rules was recommended by the NBA's Competition Committee at its meeting on June 12.

    I can't wait to see how NBA officials will enforce this rule! How will they define immediately? What extenuating circumstances apply?

    I don't really understand the rule about clear path...what do they mean by at any point?  At any point after the turnover occurrs?

    The new rules will afffect Joey Crawford more than any team or player.  I hope they track overruled calls and who made them.  This might finally give the league some objective means of assessing referee performance even though they won't publically admit it.

    Another worry is the expanded review process. Will this further delay games while refs review a questionable play in slow motion 100-times?

    This has the potential to be a momentum killer for one of the two teams involved!
