NBA set to vote on 22-team plan to restart league
Sports
NBA leaders will vote on an elaborate return-to-play proposal that includes 22 teams, a truncated resumption of the suspended regular season and a full round of playoffs to crown a champion sometime in October, according to reports.

The league’s board of governors is to meet virtually on Thursday to vote on the final proposal from commissioner Adam Silver.

Among the details reported today by various publications citing sources:

There are still issues to be leaked or announced, such as how the league will determine which teams will meet in the “regular season” portion of the return to play.

Also, details of health safety have to be finalized concerning the COVID-19 testing protocols, who precisely will be allowed in the various facilities and who will be sequestered along with the players, coaches and team officials under the league “bubble.”

The Raptors had a 46-18 record and were in second place in the Eastern Conference — third overall in the NBA — when the season was suspended on March 11. They held a three-game lead over third-place Boston and trailed first place Milwaukee by 6.5 games, putting them on track for a first-round playoff series with either Orlando or Brooklyn, who were in a virtual tie for seventh when games were halted.
