NBA G League Announces 2020/21 Schedule

The NBA G League has formally announced its schedule for the 2020/21 season, which will begin on February 10 at the league’s bubble in Walt Disney World.

The G League regular season will run from February 10 to March 6, with each team playing 15 regular season games during that 25-day window.

The top eight teams at the end of the regular season will participate in a single-elimination postseason tournament, which will tip off on March 8. The G League Final will be played on March 11.

As we previously relayed, only 18 teams will take part in the 2020/21 NBAGL season, since the single-site format couldn’t accommodate all 29 squads. Seventeen of the participating clubs are affiliates of NBA teams, while the 18th is the G League Ignite, a select team made up of a few NBAGL veterans and a handful of prospects who joined the Ignite rather than attending college.

In a typical G League season, rosters are constantly in flux as NBA teams frequently assign, recall, transfer, and call up players over the course of the year. While that will still happen to some extent in 2020/21, I’d expect far less turnover than usual, given the COVID-19 protocols that players must clear to participate in the bubble and to return to an NBA roster.
