NBA Scrimmages - 2020 NBA scrimmage schedule, scores and resultsThe 2019-20 NBA season was put on hold March 11 due to the coronavirus pandemic. But an NBA restart is in motion, with 22 of the league's 30 teams -- the teams who still had a shot at the playoffs -- playing in a single-site "quarantine bubble" location, at Disney Wide World of Sports near Orlando, Florida.

First up, NBA teams are playing scrimmage games against each other. Think of these NBA scrimmages as exhibition games. A preseason, of sorts. Except, in regular preseason, teams have new players and need to develop chemistry. In this case, these teams -- well, the good ones -- already have chemistry, and just need to get exercise, raise their intensity level, and prepare for what comes next: starting July 30, the 22 teams will play "seeding games," leading to what will hopefully be a full 2019-20 playoffs.

Under the competitive format for the restart, the 22 participating teams will be the eight teams in each conference with the highest current winning percentages and the six teams that are currently within six games of the eighth seed in either conference. The restart will begin with each participating team playing eight “seeding games,” as selected from its remaining regular-season matchups.

Here are the 2020 NBA scrimmage games schedule, scores and results:
