The regular season will be extended into late April, pushing back the playoffs and the finals by a week. To fit 66 games teams will have to play, on average, about two more games per month.

Teams will sometimes have to play on three consecutive nights something that has not been done since the lockout-shortened 1999 season. That season, the shortest in the modern era, is often regarded with an asterisk, and was marked by sloppy play and out-of-shape players.

The 2011-12 season may need only a quarter-asterisk. Every team will play 48 in-conference games, just four fewer than normal. But teams will play only 18 out-of-conference games, meaning not every team will visit every city.
