The NBA is postponing Saturday’s scheduled contest between the Pacers and Suns, per a team press release. The NBA announced that COVID-19 health and safety protocols will preclude Phoenix from being able to field at least eight players at Phoenix Suns Arena this weekend.

In less than a month of action, this will be the 10th game of the 2020-21 season to be postponed as a result of coronavirus-related health and safety protocols. The Suns’ game against the Warriors scheduled for Friday was previously postponed on Thursday.

John Gambadoro of Arizona Sports 98.7 FM Phoenix reports that no Suns players themselves have recorded positive coronavirus tests, which would indicate that enough players are quarantining as a result of contact tracing that the game will still need to be postponed.
