Can you run out of bounds to get around someone and come back in bounds to continue play during a game of basketball?

During the course of play, as long as you reestablish legal position on the court prior to receiving the ball play continues without penalty.

An inbounds play may be a different case. I believe you cannot be the first one to touch the inbounded ball if you go out of bounds to shake a defender.

If the player with the ball steps out of bounds, the play is over. If another player steps out of bounds, he cannot rejoin that play unless he was forced out by an opponent.

Out of bounds in basketball is passed the line at the end of the court. If a person with the ball stands out of bounds the other team gets the ball. Someone on Team A is on offence (they have the ball) and someone on Team A knocks the ball out of bounds, Team B gets the ball. But if Team A was on offence and Team B knocks the ball out of bounds, Team A keeps the ball.

If his knee touches inbounds, he is considered tackled in the field of play, regardless if the the ball ends up out of bounds. The clock will continue to run

No. Once the ball touches a player that is out of bounds, the ball is considered out of bounds.

The base line in basketball is the out of bounds line!

The inbound line is the line that runs around the entire court. This is also called the out of bounds line, as when you step on or outside of it, you are out of bounds, and you commit a turnover.

When you step on the line, you are out of bounds. You cannot step on the boundary line at all and still be in bounds.

All players can be out of bounds if they wish, but it will not get them anywhere.

When the ball makes contact with anything that is out of bounds (this includes touching the out of bounds line) it is considered 'out of bounds'. If the ball goes out of bounds in the air and is pulled back, it is not considered out of bounds.

As with all sports, it is important to understand the boundaries on a basketball court. A player only needs one foot to establish in bounds in basketball.

No, it is not considered out of bounds if the ball hits the side of the backboard. Unless it bounces off the side of the backboard and then out of bounds before you or someone else can catch it.

if the ball goes out of bounds then the team that threw it out of bounds doesnt get it

. Not technically because they would already be out of bounds so it wouldn't matter.

The line is out in basketball. If a player has the ball and his toe touches the line, he is out of bounds.

User Avatar

in order for a ball in basketball to be considered to be out of bounds the ball MUST touch/hit the ground out bounds ... if the ball does not touch/hit out of bounds the ball is still live a play can go out of bounds to throw/pass the ball back in bounds so long as the player that is going for the ball bounds feet are in the air when he makes contact with the ball ...

In basketball people have 5 seconds to take the ball out of bounds.

AnswerFrom What You Have Asked You Have Established Your Position And You Are Out Of Bounds. Both Feet Do Not Need To Be On The Floor When You Recieve The Ball. But Your Feet Cannot Be Out Of Bounds.The above was not very clear. You're saying if I'm standing out of bounds and someone passes it to me, all I have to do is leave the floor then I'm no longer out of bounds. Your feet have to be established in bounds before you can touch the ball

A ball is out of bounds if it goes over the baseline (the line that goes in a rectangle all around the court)
