The NBA has informed its franchises that it is targeting no earlier than May 8 for any use of team's practice facility according to Shams Charania from The Athletic.
Just a couple of days ago, the league said that starting May 1st. the NBA was allowing teams to open their practice facilities to players in cities and states where local governments have eased stay-at-home orders. This won't be happening as planned.

The association also informed franchises that players must conduct a resting ECG and troponin test before they resume engaging in activities at facility.
