According to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, the Oklahoma City Blue and 17 other G League teams are finalizing plans to host their season on the Disney campus in Orlando by playing in a bubble.

The start of the season is currently slated to begin on Feb. 8.

The playoffs are scheduled from March 5 to March 9 with each team expected to play a 12 to 15 game schedule.

The NBA finished last season on the same campus after the initial suspension of the 2019-20 season on March 11. 22 teams were invited to The Bubble, which lasted from July 30 to Oct. 11.

The remaining 11 franchises have decided to opt-out of The G League Bubble.

All 18 participating teams are expected to cover health and safety costs that range from $400,000 to $500,000.
