While some teams may indeed be allowing players onto team facilities, others are not, CBSSports.com has learned.

In at least one case, players reported to start offseason workouts. When they arrived, a source close to the situation said, a lawyer working for the team escorted the players into a conference room, handed them a letter, and asked them to leave.

Similar stories are being told to CBSSports.com. Some teams are providing the illusion of allowing players to work out but once behind closed doors — and away from the media — players are told to either leave the facility or are barred from using weight facilities.

In some cases, it appears, teams aren’t truly honoring Nelson’s ruling ending the lockout.

This is getting nasty and needs to be controlled by Judge Susan Nelson. Or else all hell will break loose even more than it has.
