It’s looking more likely that the Miami Heat will have a chance to prove how good they are this season.

The NBA has a board of governors call set for Friday, May 29, which is expected to reveal more information about a late July restart of the season. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the league is still uncertain about the regular season and playoff structure to end the season.

Miami entered the March 11 suspension of the season with the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference. If the NBA jumped straight to the playoffs, they would hold home-court advantage against the Indiana Pacers. (Of course, that’s assuming the NBA doesn’t change the playoff format.)

The Heat haven’t advanced past the first round of the playoffs since 2016.
