NEW YORK -- The NBA Board of Governors approved the further expansion of instant replay for the upcoming season.

Referees will now be able to use replay at any point during the game to determine if a player should shoot free throws after a foul occurred and whether a clear-path-to-the-basket foul meets the criteria for such a call.

In addition, replay can be used throughout the overtime period to determine which player last touched the ball prior to it going out-of-bounds.

Also, during the final two minutes of regulation and the entire OT, replay can show if the ball touched the rim to correctly adjust the 24-second shot clock.

Finally, the referees can use replay to fix the game clock and shot clock during reviews of an out-of-bounds call.

The league now uses 11 different triggers for instant replay review.
