Multiple sources have reported that there's a good amount of players who are scared of living inside a 'bubble' for the NBA season resuming in Orlando.
Therefore, Shams Charania from The Athletic has said that the league will allow teams to bring up to 17 players per roster into the resumed season.

Players deciding against participating in Orlando could be replaced by a substitution player.
Players who have signed an NBA/G League deal this year or a previous year are expected to be available to sign in restarted season. This means veteran free agents like Jamal Crawford and JR Smith are eligible.
'Crossover J' played for the Phoenix Suns last year while Smith was waived by the Cavaliers on July 15, 2019.
