NBA commissioner Adam Silver doesn't know when he'll be able to share more information about the future of the 2019-20 season, but he doesn't expect anything concrete to happen this month.

"Essentially, what I've told my folks over the last week is that we should just accept that - at least for the month of April - we won't be in a position to make any decisions," Silver said in an interview with TNT's Ernie Johnson on Monday. "And I don't think that necessarily means that on May 1 we will be, but at least I know - just to settle everybody down a little bit.

"That doesn't mean that internally, both the league and in discussions with our players and our teams, we aren't looking at many different scenarios for restarting the season, but I think it honestly is just too early given what's happening right now to even project or predict where we'll be in a few weeks."

Silver added that in a "perfect world," the NBA would play out the remainder of the regular season. He also acknowledged the league office has discussed a number of contingency plans, including the possibility of holding tournaments at a single site.

But at this point, everything is up in the air - even more so than when the NBA suspended its season on March 11.

"When we initially shut down - we were calling it a hiatus or a pause - there was a notion of 30 days because there wasn't any of the widespread view at that point that our country would, in essence, be entirely shut down over the next several weeks," Silver said. "And so the fact is now, sitting here today, I know less, in a way, than I did then."
