NBA reportedly works on a 25-day ‘back-to-basketball’ plan

The NBA is working on a 25-day ‘back-to-basketball’ plan to resume the season, per Brian Windhorst of ESPN.

The plan would include an individual workout period as well as a a ‘training camp’ for teams in order to get ready to play.

“In talking to executives and trainers around the league, what they’re looking at is a 25-day return to basketball window. An 11-day series of individual workouts. …and then hopefully, if the clearance comes that they can play five-on-five basketball, a 14-day training camp.

So as you hope for the country to heal and the virus to get better, look for at least about a three-and-a-half to four-week return date before you’d ever get back to games,” Windhorst said on ESPN on Sunday, as transcribed by Michael Shapiro of Sports Illustrated.
