5 games postponed due to NBA’s COVID-19 outbreak

The Athletic

The NBA has postponed five games across three days amid the league's COVID-19 outbreak. Three matchups on Sunday — the Denver Nuggets at the Brooklyn Nets, the Cleveland Cavaliers at the Atlanta Hawks and the New Orleans Pelicans at the Philadelphia 76ers — have been called off.

Monday's game between the Orlando Magic and the Toronto Raptors, as well as Tuesday's game between the Washington Wizards and the Nets, have also been postponed. The NBA has not provided information on when the matchups will be rescheduled.

The postponements come amid a league-wide outbreak with a growing number of players entering health and safety protocols. The Nets have a league-high 10 members in protocols, including stars Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.
