With anticipation growing, the Charlotte Hornets will know the fate of their season very soon.

Fans have been without basketball for almost three months, and the Charlotte Hornets will finally get news on the season next week. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the league is expected to ratify a restart plan on Thursday.

The league’s Board of Governors are expected to ratify the restart plan that is being proposed by Commissioner Adam Silver. The Commissioner’s restart format is expected to take place at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Flordia, as the league has been working hard to secure a deal for this location.

Based on earlier reports by Shams Charania of The Athletic, the league has been in talks to use Disney World’s ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. The size of the Sports Complex is about 220 acres.

So far, at least eight teams will not be finishing the rest of their season. According to ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne and Zach Lowe, the league is expected to invite 20-22 teams to finish the season at Disney World.

The Hornets are currently the 10th ranked team in the Eastern Conference, and it’s unclear if they will be one of the teams that are invited to participate in Orlando. The team last played on March 11th, in which they defeated the Miami Heat in comeback fashion.

There are only six teams that have a better record than the Hornets that are outside of the top-8 in each conference. The league initially seemed interested in using the top twenty teams in the league that have the best records.

However, the most recent Board of Governors call included a plan on which teams should see playing time. Ramona Shelburne confirmed the plans’ specifications as, “teams that are within six games of a playoff spot would be invited to compete in regular-season games, then a play-in tourney for the final spot.”
