Wednesday’s game between the Atlanta Hawks and Phoenix Suns has been postponed, the NBA announced.
Contact tracing with Phoenix players is a factor because the Suns played the Washington Wizards on Monday, the league said. The Wizards have had positive COVID-19 tests within their roster, sources told ESPN, and also had their game for Wednesday postponed.
That has left the Suns without the league-required eight available players to proceed with Wednesday’s game vs. Atlanta.
It becomes the seventh NBA game this season to be postponed due to health and safety protocols.
