The 2023–24 NBA season is the 78th season of the National Basketball Association (NBA).
The regular season began on October 24, 2023, and will end on April 14, 2024. The NBA will hold an in-season tournament for the first time between November 3 and December 9, with all games except the final counting toward the regular season standings.
The 2024 NBA All-Star Game is scheduled for February 18, 2024, at Gainbridge Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
The play-in tournament is scheduled for April 16–19, and the playoffs are set to begin on April 20. The NBA Finals are scheduled to start on June 6, with a possible Game 7 scheduled for June 23.
ESPN primarily broadcasts Wednesday and Friday night games for most of the season, and games during selected Sunday nights from February to April. ABC is scheduled to air nine NBA Saturday Primetime games, including a tripleheader on January 27, over seven selected Saturdays between that January date and March.
ABC will also have NBA Sunday Showcase on four selected Sunday afternoons in February and March, with three of them as doubleheaders.
On October 2, 2023, it was announced that five January games originally scheduled as part of ESPN’s Wednesday doubleheaders would instead air on ABC.
