A seventh NBA game has been postponed this season.
According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Atlanta Hawks-Phoenix Suns matchup on Wednesday night has been canceled due to COVID-19 issues.
Contact tracing with Phoenix players is a factor because Suns played the Wizards on Monday, per sources. Wizards have positive tests on roster. https://t.co/C8DUWVOQxs— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) January 13, 2021
The Suns recently played the Washington Wizards, who have several players in COVID-19 health and safety protocols. The Hawks have been told that contact tracing is the reason for the postponement, Wojnarowski adds.
Phoenix does not have the required eight players to compete on Wednesday night.
The Suns are scheduled to play the Golden State Warriors on Friday while the Hawks are scheduled to take on the Utah Jazz.
