NBA planning to return before Christmas for 2020-2021 season

NBA planning to return before Christmas for 2020-2021 seasonNBA and Commissioner Adam Silver informed the Board of Governors that the league is planning -and hoping- for a pre-Christmas start for 2020-2021 season, despite former reports that said the new season would start not earlier than January 18th, and as late as mid-March. This early restart plan might come as a surprise for many, but the NBA has it clear, starting early gives time for a longer regular season and a good chance to return to “normality”, hopefully, for later on, for 2021-2020.

This plan is not yet approved and it does face many obstacles, starting with the fact that the Lakers just got their ring a couple of weeks ago, and teams that were in the bubble will not get much rest, as opposed to others who have been resting since March, or that just had little activity in the seeding games in Orlando.

Free agency just opened, and the NBA Draft is supposed to take place on November 18th, so all this makes it hard for teams to plan, and the transfer market will certainly be a little crazy as well.

Why is Zion Williamson still playing limited minutes in the NBA Bubble?NBA’s 2019-2020 season has restarted after 141 days of forced stop due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and it’s causing many reactions since day 1. Utah Jazz and New Orleans Pelicans squared up for the first ever NBA game in Disney, and the Jazz came up with the big win in the end.

It was a good game to watch, we had been waiting for that for a long time, fans and bookies, we were all equally happy to see the NBA coming back and even more after confirming the news that there were zero Covid-19 cases inside the bubble after the last couple of testing rounds, which of course means that everything is going as planned and we’ll hopefully be able to see the season ending we were all waiting for.

However, if you watched the game, you probably noticed that New Orleans Pelicans favorite and newest superstar, Zion Williamson, wasn’t allowed to contribute too much for his team, as he was limited to 15 minutes of play only. Now, remember that Zion missed the first 43 games of the season due to injury and he came back in late January and played 19 games before the season stopped.
