NBA restart – Rosters, schedules and standings projections for every team


The restart of the 2019-20 NBA season is almost here, as all 22 teams ramp up practices inside the bubble at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World.

With scrimmages tipping off Wednesday, here’s our breakdown of every team in Orlando, Florida, including: current seed and most likely playoff seeds (via simulations using ESPN’s Basketball Power Index), remaining strength of schedule (ranked from hardest to easiest), seeding-game schedules (with win projections using BPI), full rosters and projected rotations.

We’ve also included the number of games back for teams in the race for the final playoff spots. If the No. 9 seed finishes within four games of the No. 8 seed in either conference, there will be a play-in tournament in which the No. 9 seed would need to beat the No. 8 seed twice to earn the playoff berth, while the No. 8 seed would need one win from the two potential games.
