The Warriors will have to wait even longer to find out where they will be picking in the 2020 NBA Draft.

The 2020 NBA Draft Lottery, scheduled for May 19, and the 2020 NBA Draft Combine, slated for May 21-24, have been indefinitely postponed, the league announced Friday afternoon.

The Warriors -- who virtually are guaranteed a top-five pick because they have the worst record in the league and most likely won't play any more games -- were expecting this to happen.

This decision essentially means the NBA is not planning on canceling the rest of the 2019-20 season any time soon.

The league wants to buy more time and exhaust all options before that worst-case scenario possibly comes to fruition.

If the season resumes at some point this summer, it's unclear when the lottery will take place.
