NEW YORK (AP) -The NBA's Board of Governors has approved the expanded use of instant replay for the 2008-09 season.
Referees will be allowed to review video to determine if a field goal was a 2- or 3-point attempt, or to decide if a shooting foul was committed behind the arc and warrants three shots instead of two.
At their meeting Thursday, owners also approved the use of replay if the game clock malfunctions in the final seconds of a quarter of overtime, helping the officials better determine how much time should have come off the clock or if the period should have ended.
Now, refs must reconstruct the play and make that determination without video - a rule that was criticized following a clock problem during a Orlando-Detroit playoff game last season.
