As has been reported for much of the past month, the league's return will take place exclusively at Disney World in Orlando for a myriad of reasons including the fact that it's privately managed.
While the Miami Heat, who now sit at the No. 4 seed in the Eastern Conference, will not have to worry about whether or not they will advance to the postseason, it appears as though the eight games left in the regular season will impact playoff seeding.
But if the gap between the eighth and ninth seed is under four games, those teams would reportedly meet in a double-elimination, play-in tournament to determine the 8-seed.
From there, the playoff bracket would proceed like normal with four rounds of best-of-seven series to crown a champion.

The plan includes 22 teams, which gives the league a chance to recoup some of the money it will lose from cutting games in regional TV markets.
The Western Conference would have 13 teams going to Disney, and the Eastern Conference would have nine.
Further details of a potential play-in tournament following the regular season also came to light Wednesday.
Currently, the Grizzlies hold a 3.5-game lead on Portland, New Orleans, and Sacramento in the West, with San Antonio four games back, and Phoenix six games back. However, if the No. 9 team wins, they'll play each other one more time in a victor take all game.
Once July 31 comes around, the 2019-20 NBA season will continue with 22 teams on site in Orlando, and will continue until October 12, which is reportedly the scheduled date for a potential Game 7 of the NBA Finals.
