The NBA’s best players could miss the rescheduled Tokyo Olympics if the 2020-21 season begins in January.
A December start was suggested for the delayed campaign, but NBA commissioner Adam Silver believes it might now be the new year.
A January start could mean the play-offs finish in August or September with the Olympics set for a 23 July start.
Silver said it was possible “the top 15 NBA players aren’t competing in the Olympics, but others are”. (BBC)
