NBA expands playoff rosters to 13

New York, NY (Sports Network) – The NBA has decided to expand playoff rosters
from 12 to 13 for the 2006 postseason.

Only 12 players will be allowed to suit up for each playoff game, meaning one
player will have to be deactivated before the contest.

The playoffs are scheduled to open Saturday, April 22 and NBA teams will have
a deadline of 3 p.m. (et) on Thursday, April 20 to file their 13-man playoff
rosters with the league office.
