The 2023 playoffs will again feature a play-in tournament for teams that finish seventh through tenth in each conference. The teams ranked seventh and eighth in the standings will play for a chance to earn the No. 7 seed. The loser of that game will face the winner of a matchup between the ninth and tenth-ranked teams, with a playoff spot as the No. 8 seed on the line. The play-in tournament will take place from April 11-14.
