The National Basketball Players Association approved the league's 22-team format to return to play on Friday, with all 28 representatives on the call voting in favor of the plan, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium.
"The Board of Player Representatives of the National Basketball Players Association has approved further negotiations with the NBA on a 22-team return to play scenario to restart the 2019-20 NBA season.
Some of those details are already emerging as the NBA and NBPA work through a litany issues while planning to resume the 2019-20 season July 31 at ESPN's Wide World of Sports Complex in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, just outside Orlando.
Games will not be stopped if a player tests positive.
Friday's NBPA vote follows one by the NBA's board of governors, who approved the 22-team plan Thursday.
