Basketball season started again last Thursday(07/30/20). Twenty-six of the thirty teams that are in the NBA started to play in games to finish up the regular reason. The teams that started in the new season will be playing until they are eliminated on their way to the finals.
Training camps started for the teams on June 30th. By July 30th the season resumed without the presence of fans in the arenas due to social distancing and to reduce the number of people in the venue. With the season continuing on from this point, the draft which was originally scheduled for June 25 has also been pushed out and will now begin on October 15th.
The July 30th start date gives the teams sixteen days left in the regular season with five or six games being played during the day and multiple games being played back to back. The regular season is scheduled to end on August 14th and the playoffs are scheduled to start on August 17th and end on October 12th.
Unlike most years the players will then have a only have few weeks off until training camps for the 2020-2021 season begin.
