Are you still hanging from the suspended NBA games.

Basketball fans just need to wait a little longer.

The rest of the NBA season, which was interrupted by the coronavirus pandemic, is set to be played at Florida’s Disney World Resort from 31 July, said BBC.

This is after the NBA board of governors on Thursday approved the plan to resume the season.

In late May, there was an exploratory conversation between the NBA management together with the NBA Players Association (NBAPA) and The Walt Disney Company to push through with the games.

Though NBPA still need to agree to the plan before it is confirmed, said BBC.

It is expected to vote during a conference call on Friday.

What’s the setup? You may ask.

Thirteen Western Conference teams and nine Eastern Conference teams will contest eight games each to determine seedings for the play-offs, said BBC.

Under the NBA’s proposals, all 22 teams will be based at the resort, and games will be played without spectators to minimize the threat of the coronavirus.

There is an ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando that includes a 5,000-seat indoor basketball facility.

On 11 March, the season was suspended because of coronavirus pandemic.

In late May, the leagues’ Chief Communications Officer Mike Bass, teased that the NBA will resume its games soon.
