NBA Receives Permission for a Late 2020-21 Regular Season Start

The NBA is focused on finishing its season.

While the timetable for the remaining games is yet to be known, the NBA is in constant communication with federal health officials. Moreover, the league continues to search for suitable locations for the potential return to play.

In the most up-to-date reports, the NBA has considered playing games in Orlando at Disney World. Additionally, MGM Resorts International has pitched both the NBA and WNBA on a plan to create a quarantined area within Las Vegas to allow both leagues to finish their seasons and playoffs. According to Kevin Draper of the New York Times, MGM would provide a bubble campus for the players, families, team staff, and league employees.

MGM would ensure the safety of all involved, stating in their proposal that “any person entering the integrated resort would have to go through agreed health, safety and quarantine protocols.”

In other news, the league office has received permission from the rest of the NBA to push back the start of next season in attempt to salvage the remainder of the 2019-20 campaign. The current plan is to start the 2020-21 season in December, extending the year through late July or August.

The league hopes fans will be granted permission to return to arenas come next season.
