NBA games postponed on MLK Day 2021

As of Sunday night, Cavs vs. Wizards is the only game that has been removed from the MLK Day schedule. Due to contact tracing within the team, Washington does not have the minimum number of players required to play the game.

“We have nine players right now that are in protocol. Six have tested positive for COVID-19,” Wizards general manager Tommy Sheppard said Friday. “We are certainly not gonna be able to play these games on Sunday and Monday. … It’s just an unfortunate set of circumstances.”
