This becomes the 22nd game postponed by the NBA this season

The game between the San Antonio Spurs and the host New Orleans Pelicans was postponed on Monday, January 25, because each team’s contact COVID-19 tracing left them both without the league-required 8 players, the NBA announced about two hours before the game was scheduled to start.

This is the 22nd game postponed by the league already this season, with all but one occurring this month.

The Spurs beat the visiting Washington Wizards 121-101 on Sunday night, January 24, in the Wizards’ first game since January 11.

The Wizards had their previous 6 games postponed because they did not have enough eligible players due to the league’s COVID-19 protocols.

The Pelicans ended a six-game road swing with a 120-110 loss at the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday.

The Pelicans have not had any COVID-19 issues this season within their team. The Pelicans-Mavericks game on January 11 was postponed due to COVID-19 health and safety protocols for Dallas. –
