In such case, the odds-on favorites to win it the NBA title, the Los Angeles Lakers, will most likely resume the season by taking on the Houston Rockets.

The rest of the Lakers games should include the Nuggets, Jazz (twice), Raptors, Pacers and two more teams not on the original schedule, per Dan Feldman of NBC Sports.

The Lakers are currently sitting atop the Western Conference with 49 wins and 14 losses, trailed by the Clippers with a 44-20 record.
