Like many sporting events around the world, the NBA was one of those that got suspended as a result of the widespread COVID-19 virus and now the NBA Commissioner Adam Silver is working on seeing that games return to normal.
Earlier, we heard reports that the NBA would be returning on the 31 July and by the looks of things, this is still the date that the league is pushing forward with.
The league commissioner Adama Silver has proposed for only 22 teams to return and play 8 games each to determine which ones will go to the next round of the playoffs.
Teams like the Golden State Warriors might find themselves missing out of the opportunity seeing as they were the last team on the Western Conference log.
League sources understand that the earlier proposal of playing the remaining games in one location is something that Adam Silver will push for in the meeting with the board.

We also understand that the decision is expected to be made today on Thursday but already it seems that the decision will side with the proposal by Adam Silver, which aims to have all the remaining games played at the Disneyland ESPN Sports Center in Orlando.
Western Conference has the biggest number of teams that will make it to Orlando with the conference expected to send 13 teams while the Eastern Conference will have just 9 teams make it.
Teams will be playing the remaining fixtures that they had but in the event where they find themselves having to play against a team that wasn’t called on, they would then go on to the next fixture. The tentative date being looked at for the finals of the season is the 12th of October.
As we wait for the decision, Newslibre will be keeping you updated on all major news on the different social media pages on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
