NBA players will be banned from wearing “ninja-style” headwear during the 2019-20 season amid safety concerns.

The headbands have caused alarm among some NBA teams because of the design’s loose ties on the back.

“Teams have raised concerns regarding safety and consistency of size, length, and how they are tied, which requires a thorough review before consideration of any rule change,” said NBA spokesman Mike Bass.

High profile players such as Jimmy Butler of the Miami Heat and Karl-Anthony Towns of the Minnesota Timberwolves have sported the headwear over the past year.

“When some players began wearing them last season, we didn’t want to cause a disruption by intervening midseason, but we notified our teams in May that they would not be part of this season’s uniforms,” said Bass.

“The ninja-style headwear is not part of the NBA uniform and hasn’t been through the league approval process.”
