After a hiatus lasting well over four months, the 2019-20 NBA season is back in action inside the Disney World bubble in Orlando. Twenty-two of the league's 30 teams are participating in the restart, and each have eight seeding games to play to determine final postseason positioning before the playoffs get underway in mid-August. 

For some teams, the seeding games are merely a formality as their postseason position is already set in stone. For others, though, it's an opportunity to climb up the standings in order to set up a more favorable first-round matchup, or to potentially steal a postseason spot. 

Below is a look at the full schedule of seeding games, complete with dates, times and television information.
