Off-Ball Fouls

Referees have used video to review situations in which they re not reasonably certain whether an off-ball foul occurred before or after a player started his shooting motion on a successful shot attempt or before or after the ball was released on a throw-in.

Reviewable Matters:

  1. Whether the 24-second clock expired before the foul occurred
  2. Whether an 8-second backcourt violation occurred before the player was fouled


  1. Review must take place immediately after the preceding foul call
  2. Reviewable off-ball fouls include double fouls and offensive foul calls (added 2014-15)
