Explanation
When A4 leaves the playing court beyond the substitution line, it is considered a violation. However, since A4 has not yet arrived in their substitution area, they are still considered to be on the playing court. Therefore, when A11 crosses the line correctly to enter the playing court, it is also considered a violation. The correct decision after the whistle from the timekeeper would be a free-throw against team A where A4 left the court, as well as a 2-minute suspension for player A4.
