NBA Board of Governors mulling a December start for the 2020-21 season


According to reporting from Adrian Wojnarowski, the NBA's Board of Governors are in deep discussions to push back the start of the 2020-21 season until December. 

The league is still working hard towards finding a way to resume the 2019-20 season, which was postponed after the first NBA player tested positive for Covid-19. 

Current discussions have hinted at a possible December-to-July or August timeline for the 2021 NBA season. As discussed earlier this week, there are many hurdles to any league operations resuming, with everything from the regular season to the draft lottery up in the air status-wise. It is estimated that for the 2019-20 season to resume, 'at least 15,000 [Covid-19] tests' would be needed.

There is no official word on the status of the 2019-20 season at this time but according to Wojnarowski, league officials are cautiously optimistic that the season can be picked back up at some point in the future.
