The Portland Trail Blazers will resume the 2019-20 season with a matchup against the Memphis Grizzlies on July 31, it was announced today by the NBA.
The National Basketball Association and the National Basketball Players Association have finalized a comprehensive plan for a July 30 restart to the 2019-20 season, which includes stringent health and safety protocols, a single-site campus at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and the goal of taking collective action to combat systemic racism and promote social justice.
Under the competitive format for the restart, the 22 participating teams will be the eight teams in each conference with the highest current winning percentages and the six teams that are currently within six games of the eighth seed in either conference.
