According to sources, the NBA Board of Governors is planning on approving Commissioner Adam Silver’s plan to resume the NBA season tomorrow.

In the season’s resumption, 22 teams with playoff aspirations, including the Rockets, will return to action next month in Orlando.

The 22 teams will play eight games of regular season action before finalizing their seeding before the playoffs, which are expected to feature Best-of-7 series each round. The league is expected to finish no later than October 12.

There will also be a play-in series for those vying for the eighth playoff spot in each conference.

The Rockets are 8.5 games ahead of the ninth seed, which effectively means the Rockets have qualified for this year’s playoffs.

It is unknown who the Rockets would face in the eight-game regular season that would shape up how the teams will be seeded in the Western Conference. The team currently sits in the sixth seed, but they could climb to as high as the #2 seed when the season resumes.
