Per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the 22 teams involved with the NBA's return-to-play plan -- James' Lakers being one of them -- will play eight regular-season games in Orlando prior to the start of the playoffs.

The league hasn't formally announced the plan, but Wojnarowski reports that the eight games will be used for seeding purposes. It's still unclear how the league will structure the postseason, but it appears the NBA is prepared for the 2019-20 season to run as late as mid-October, as Wojnarowski previously reported on Tuesday.
