NBA Schedule 2020: Dates, Times, TV channels for the season restart in Orlando

More than three months after the NBA suspended the game after Rudy Gobert’s positive coronavirus (COVID-19) test, the league is finally on track to restart the 2020 season.

Play resumes on July 30 with a doubleheader featuring the Jazz vs. Pelicans and Clippers vs. Lakers. Seeding games continue every day until August 14 to determine the position of the playoffs. The postseason follows the typical format with full best-of-seven series up to and including the NBA Finals.

In total, 22 teams will travel to Orlando, Fla: the 16 teams currently in the playoff position and six teams within six games of the No. 8 seed in both conferences (Kings, Pelicans, Spurs, Suns, Trail Blazers , Wizards).

Outside of the schedule, there are other unprecedented challenges. Players will face the threat of the new coronavirus and injury from such a long layoff, plus the mental challenge of staying focused on basketball while largely isolated from the outside world.

The full NBA schedule for the 2020 regular season is listed below by date, along with the current standings. (Times and TV channels for the last two days of seeding games have not yet been announced.)
