Wednesday’s game between the Atlanta Hawks and Phoenix Suns has been postponed, the NBA announced.
Tracing contacts 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 on their roster, sources told ESPN, and their game was also postponed to Wednesday.
That has left the Suns without the eight available players required by the league to continue Wednesday’s game against Atlanta.
It is the seventh NBA game this season that has been postponed due to health and safety protocols.
