(AP) -- The NCAA was given a respite Friday when the 9th U.S. Circuit Court delayed the implementation of possible payments to athletes for the use of their names, images and likenesses.

The stay in the Ed O'Bannon case allows schools to withhold payments of roughly $5,000 in deferred money to football and basketball players, which were expected to begin Saturday as part of the landmark ruling handed down by U.S. District Judge Claudia Wilken last summer.

"We are pleased that the 9th Circuit today granted the NCAA's motion for stay," NCAA chief legal counsel Donald Remy said in a statement. "As a result, the NCAA will not be implementing any changes to its rules in response to the district court's injunction at this time. We continue to await the 9th Circuit's final ruling."
