The IOC and Japan announced Tuesday the 2020 Tokyo Olympics would be postponed until 2021. The U.S.A. mens basketball team could face some changes due to the delay. What could get complicated for the NBA is if the Tokyo games take place at the same time next summer. If the NBA calendar is pushed back and the postseason takes place in July/August, teams would probably be more hesitant to take a break and have players compete in competitive games and risk injury. As of now, neither the 2021 NBA season nor the Tokyo games have an official start date.
