After a turbulent season due to the coronavirus pandemic, the NBA is optimistic they will return to the normal schedule in the 2021/22 season.

As Joe Vardon of The Athletic reports, the NBA plans to have a normal schedule next season, with the season starting in October 2021 and ending in June 2022.

The NBA was forced to have a shortened season this year, due to the pandemic, with 72 regular season games. However, this is expected to change next season, while fans will most likely return to arenas.
