The National Basketball Association is back!

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the NBA's Board of Governors has approved a 22-team format for restarting the 2019-20 season at ESPN's Wide World of Sports in Orlando at Walt Disney World.

Wojnarowski reported the news on Twitter Thursday.

The season would restart on July 31 with 13 teams from the Western Conference and nine teams from the Eastern Conference, Wojnarowski reported.

Game 7 of the NBA Finals would be played on October 12, if need be. But the season would be completed no later than October 12.

The last game was played on March 11 before the season was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
