With COVID outbreaks around the NBA, combined with injuries, several NBA teams are struggling to put competitive rosters on the court. As such, the NBA has postponed five games through Tuesday, December 21.
The postponed games are:
Denver Nuggets at Brooklyn Nets - Sunday, December 19
Cleveland Cavaliers at Atlanta Hawks - Sunday, December 19
New Orleans Pelicans at Philadelphia 76ers - Sunday, December 19
Orlando Magic at Toronto Raptors - Monday, December 20
Washington Wizards at Brooklyn Nets - Tuesday, December 21
This brings the total number of postponed games to seven. The league previously postponed two Chicago Bulls games against the Detroit Pistons and Toronto Raptors.
The NBA and NBPA are continuing talks on increased roster sizes, as well as lack of cap/tax penalties when a player is signed via hardship.
