In a vote of 29 to 1 with the Portland Trailblazers the only team voting no, NBA owners approving the league’s 22-team return to play format that will restart the season in a little less than eight weeks.

Welcomed news for not only the players and the fans but front office decision makers as well.

Guys like Grizzlies President Jason Wexler who says the NBA did a good job in piecing together a plan, 22 teams, eight regular season games and a possible play in for the final playoff spot, that takes into account what teams accomplished before the shut down.

“We’re just excited to have basketball back on the calender,” Wexler said. “It’s been three months now.  Give or take.  So to have a date with a game to be played is fantastic.  To see these guys on the court in meaningful, competitive games, I think we all missed it even more than we realized or might have guessed.”
