NZ Breakers player Tai Webster has been cut from New Zealand Breakers because of his refusal to be vaccinated against Covid-19.
Webster was one of the players of the year in 2020 and he signed a new two-year deal with the Breakers in July.
However, the 26-year-old’s unwillingness to get a vaccine will limit his ability to play basketball and travel freely within Australia.
The Breakers are likely to play the majority of the 2021-22 NBL season based in Australia because of international travel restrictions.
The NBL season is scheduled to begin on 18 November.
