The NBA canceled two weeks worth of games at the start of the month, which means that this season's opening game will now be postponed until November 28, 2011.

If no agreement can be reached it is likely that the opening game will be delayed even further.

Up until now, 100 games have already been removed from the fixtures list as part of the NBA's 2011-2012 season.
