Black people make up 13% of the U.S. population but account for 40% of the roughly 2.3 million people incarcerated in the nation's prisons and jails, according to the Prison Policy Initiative, a Massachusetts-based research and advocacy group that uses the most recent census data from 2010 to compile a racial breakdown of who is behind bars.Detroit Pistons Face Masks

The memo, which was obtained by ESPN, says that flexibility applies to teams playing back-to-back games and presents examples of possible scenarios, including, "to rest a key veteran player who played a substantial role on a team that advanced deep into the 2020 Playoffs, or to rest a player who is still returning to full strength after recovering from COVID-19."
