The Sixers–Thunder game scheduled for Sunday night has been postponed due to ongoing contract tracing, the 14th postponement of the young season, the NBA announced in a press release.
Philadelphia doesn’t have the league-required eight players available to proceed, the league said. The team was seen warming up prior to the decision.
Seth Curry (Health and Safety), Vincent Poirier (Health and Safety), Mike Scott (knee) and Joel Embiid (knee) were the only players listed as out on the original injury report. The game was scheduled to commence at 7:00 pm ET on NBA TV.
For Philadelphia, the team has upcoming games scheduled against the Celtics on both Wednesday and Friday. They currently own the fourth-best record in the Eastern Conference at 9-5.
