The NBA postponed Monday’s scheduled game between the Spurs and Pelicans, according to a league press release.
What made this late postponement even more noteworthy was that both teams did not have the league-required eight available players due to COVID-19 contact tracing.
The Pelicans had a Jan. 11 postponement due to coronavirus issues surrounding the Mavericks. This is the first game they have not had enough players due to COVID-19 positives and contact tracing. This is the first postponement of any kind for San Antonio.
It’s the 22nd game that the league has postponed due to health and safety protocols.
