The NBA G League on Friday announced that 18 teams, including 17 NBA G League teams and G League Ignite, will start the 2021 season in February at the Wide World of Sports Complex at the Walt Disney World Resort near Orlando, Florida.

The complete 2021 NBA G League game and broadcast schedule will be announced at a later date but it was previously reported that the regular season will tipoff on Feb. 8. The top eight teams will advance to a single-elimination playoff, set to run March 5-9.

NBA teams without an NBA G League affiliate participating in Orlando will have the opportunity to assign roster players and transfer two-way players using the league’s flexible assignment and two-way rules.

Players, coaches, team and league staff living on the campus at Disney will be guided by comprehensive league-wide health and safety protocols, which are based on the core principles of social distancing, mask-wearing, hand hygiene and COVID-19 testing.
