The Chinese government canceled a Brooklyn Nets' visit to a Shanghai area school, leagues sources told Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times.

The visit entailed Nets players dedicating a refurbished basketball court at a school ceremony.

The action is a result of the ongoing dispute between the NBA and China following Daryl Morey's tweet supporting protesters in Hong Kong.

The Nets and the Lakers are scheduled to play two games in China on Thursday and Saturday.
