NBA reportedly approves 22-team restart

The NBA's Board of Governors has agreed to resume the 2019-20 season with 22 teams playing in Orlando.

What It Means:

The league is expected to resume on July 31. The 16 current playoff teams will be joined by the Portland Trail Blazers, New Orleans Pelicans, Sacramento Kings, San Antonio Spurs, Phoenix Suns, and Washington Wizards. Each team will play eight games before the playoffs for seeding purposes. If the 9th seed is within four games of the 8th seed, then there will be a play-in for the last spot that requires double-elimination for the 8th seed and single-elimination for the 9th seed. The 16 playoff teams are: Milwaukee Bucks, Los Angeles Lakers, Toronto Raptors, Los Angeles Clippers, Boston Celtics, Denver Nuggets, Utah Jazz, Miami Heat, Oklahoma City Thunder, Houston Rockets, Indiana Pacers, Philadelphia 76ers, Dallas Mavericks, Memphis Grizzlies, Brooklyn Nets, and Orlando Magic.

The Bucks are the top team in numberFire's NBA Team Power Rankings and our models give them a 55.8 percent chance of winning the title. The Lakers are next at 22.0 percent.
