The NBA is targeting July 31st as the date for the 2019-20 season to resume. According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver informed the NBA Board of Governors of the target. The league has been on hiatus since March 11th due to the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Earlier this week, Portland Trail Blazers All-Star Damian Lillard stated that he will not play if the season resumes unless the Blazers have a legitimate opportunity to make the playoffs.
