The NBA is expecting arenas to be filled again next season and a return to its normal calendar, Commissioner Adam Silver said Saturday, while cautioning again that every plan is contingent on continued progress in the ongoing fight against the coronavirus.

There are no plans for the league to travel overseas next season for exhibitions or regular-season games, Silver said, meaning recent preseason trips to foreign markets such as China, Japan or India won't be repeated until 2022 at the earliest.

But otherwise, things may largely appear back to normal - with the NBA eyeing a return to the 82-game schedule, starting in October and ending in June.
