Report: NBA Players Approve 22-Team Return-to-Play Format to Finish Season

The NBPA has approved the NBA's plan for a 22-team format to finish the 2019-20 season, which has been suspended since Wednesday, March 11 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Per Wojnarowski, the top eight teams in the Eastern and Western Conference standings plus the six teams within six games of a playoff spot will take part in the season's finish, which will occur at ESPN's Wide World of Sports Complex in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.

Teams will conclude the regular season with eight games apiece and then a play-in tournament will occur if necessary for the eighth and final playoff spot in each conference.

The NBPA's approval was the final hurdle toward approving a restart.

The NBA's board of governors approved the 22-team plan by a 29-1 vote on Thursday, per Wojnarowski.
