Instant replay expanded for this season
NEW YORK -- NBA referees will be able to use instant replay on shot-clock and out-of-bounds calls this season.
The NBA Board of Governors approved the expanded use on Friday.
Referees will be permitted to check replay to see if the 24-second clock expired before a successful shot or a foul.
They can also consult video during the last 2 minutes of regulation and any overtime period to determine which player last touched the ball prior to it going out of bounds.
