The NBA sets key dates for the resumption despite concerns

Even as the COVID-19 case in Florida hits a new high and the NBA players are concerned about the safety of living in the Orlando bubble, the league has set a much firmer schedule for the end of its season.

Although both the NGA Board of Governors and the Players Union have approved plans to reintroduce 22 teams at Disney’s ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, health guidelines and safety protocols for the league have not yet been established. According to multiple reports, preparations for the regular season starting July 30th.

Compulsory workouts will begin on July 1, and teams will first arrive at Disney’s campus for additional health checks before the health July 2 training camp, with teams scrambling for each squad scheduled for early July 21 to throw game rust.

The NBA has not yet finalized an eight-game regular-season schedule for each team – some teams had about 18 games left before the March 11 season was postponed – but matchups will be set based on the rest of the games. A possible play-in series for the final playoffs will begin on August 15th, if the No. 9 seed and No. 9 seed of a conference are in each other’s four games. Seed No. 9 has to throw a two-game series to advance, while No. 8 Seed has to win only one game.

The first round of NBA playoffs could begin on August 17 – or if the play-in series had not taken place before – limited family members / guests were allowed to enter Disney premises on August 30, when the semifinal matchups of the eight conferences were scheduled.

The conference finals are scheduled to begin Sept. 15, with the NBA Finals games coming on Sept. 30. Game 7 will not end after October 13th.

All dates are subject to change.
