Monday was an important day for the Warriors.
A source confirmed to NBC Sports Bay Area's Logan Murdock that the Warriors re-opened their facility on Monday after the team got approval from the City and County of San Francisco. The Warriors adhered to all protocols set for the by the league and city.
"About five players" of the team showed up to work out, sources told Anthony Slater of The Athletic.
Expectation remains that Warriors won't be part of any NBA restart, but there's an obvious need to sharpen skills, get on training programs for the summer and eventually be able to do group workouts/scrimmages and perhaps mini training camp https://t.co/1QKpSmzvlb— Anthony Slater (@anthonyVslater) June 1, 2020
The arena has been completely shut down since mid-March because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Warriors have been following guidelines from San Francisco mayor London Breed and local public health officials.
"Once we receive approval by the County Health Officer, we plan to open our practice facility for voluntary workouts with our players," the team announced last week. "In doing so, we will follow all health and safety protocols and procedures implemented by the NBA, the City and County and our own additional [COVID-19] measures.”
