AP source: NBA owners approve 22-team season restart plan

By TIM REYNOLDS AP Basketball Writer

A person with knowledge of the situation says the NBA's Board of Governors has approved a 22-team format for restarting the league season in late July at the Disney campus near Orlando, Florida.

The format calls for each team playing eight games to determine playoff seeding plus the possible utilization of a play-in tournament for the final spot in the Eastern Conference and Western Conference postseason fields.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Thursday because the league had not yet revealed the vote result publicly.
