The National Basketball Association’s board of governors voted on Thursday to resume the season in Orlando, according to multiple reports. The NBA Players Association will have a conference call to approve the new format on Friday.

Here are the key points to know:

*The season will resume on July 31, 2020 and end Oct. 12

*22 teams will travel to Disney World in Orlando, Florida, to complete the rest of the 2019-20 season and playoffs

*The 22 teams will be the 16 currently in the playoffs plus the Pelicans, Blazers, Suns, Kings, Spurs and Wizards

*There will be 8 more regular season games to determine seeding and spots in a potential play-in situation between the 8- and 9-seeds

*After the conclusion of the regular season, the top-7 seeds will be set. At that point, the 8-seed and 9-seed from each conference will — if the 9-seed is within four games of the 8-seed — play in a heads-up situation for the final spot. The 9-seed will have to beat the 8-seed twice in a row to win; the 8-seed just has to win one game

*A fluid date of December 1 has been floated as the start of next season
