Adam Silver appeared on TNT's Inside the NBA to discuss the possibilities of how the rest of the season could play out.
Silver suspended the league for at least 30 days in an open letter to NBA fans.
While Silver did not rule out suspending the season for good, he added that the league could stretch out the season into July if need be.
“Even if we are out for a month, even if we are out for six weeks, we could still restart the season. It might mean that the Finals take place in July or late July. It was way premature to suggest that we had lost the season," said Silver.
Brad Turner of the LA Times reported that Lakers players came away from a conference call with the sense that NBA owners want to finish the regular season and playoffs, even if it takes the season into July or August.
