The NBA is planning to reschedule some of its postponed games in the first half of the season rather than moving them to the second half, the league announced.

“In addition, certain games that were otherwise scheduled for the Second Half will now be scheduled into the First Half, with a specific focus on the teams with the most postponed games to date. To create the maximum flexibility, dates of existing games may also be moved in order to schedule additional games into the First Half,” the statement reads.

Below are the initial changes to the upcoming schedule:

  • Portland Trail Blazers-Washington Wizards: Feb. 2, (previously second half)
  • Wizards-Charlotte Hornets: Feb. 7 (previously Jan. 20)
  • Blazers-Hornets Feb. 7: postponed to second half
