The NBA will resume its season in late July. The NBA’s Board of Governors voted Thursday to approve a plan that will see 22 teams continue the 2019-20 regular season at the ESPN Wide World of Sports according to people with knowledge of the decision who were not authorized to speak publicly.

The plan, which required a three-quarter majority and passed by a 29-1 margin, with the Portland Trail Blazers as the lone dissenting vote, will include the top nine teams from the Eastern Conference, including the Washington Wizards, and the top 13 teams from the Western Conference. The eight remaining teams will not participate given that they were well outside the playoff picture when NBA suspended its season.

Each team will play eight additional regular season games as tuneups and to help determine playoff seeding and matchups. Games will begin on July 31 and continue into October without fans in attendance. Teams will begin gathering for training camps in their home markets later this month.

The play-in round provides a path to the playoffs for six teams that were on the outside looking in back in March — the Wizards, New Orleans Pelicans, Blazers, Sacramento Kings, San Antonio Spurs and Phoenix Suns — while still favoring the incumbent eighth seeds with the single/double elimination play-in format.

The NBA suspended its season back in March due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
