Other options the NBA is sorting through has to do with how to format the rest of the season. It appears a decision will be made soon. ESPN NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski revealed on Tuesday the NBA Board of Governors is expected to make a decision on Thursday regarding a finalized plan to resume the season.
Per Wojnarowski, one of the options for the proposed timeline features Game 7 of the NBA Finals being played on Oct. 12th. Obviously, that’s much later than what has been previously reported. Early reports indicated the NBA Finals would be wrapped up by the beginning of September. This proposed timeline is much different and appears more likely.
