NBA Postpones Several Games After COVID-19 Concerns


When the pandemic first hit last year, a lot of sports were postponed and seasons started late. Well fast-forward and a lot of leagues now have COVID-19 protocols. At one point, you had the NBA teams playing in a bubble down in Orlando. There's now a little normalcy with the basketball players playing out of the bubble. However, some players have been testing positive. Just last week, the Sixers had a teammate who tested positive. And because other teams have had some positive cases, according to TMZ, multiple games are now being postponed due to COVID-19. In the past week, you had teams such as the Miami Heat, Boston Celtics, Dallas Mavericks and more have been struggling to put enough men on the court due to the NBA's Health and Safety protocols. The league requires an 8-man roster in order to compete and the Heat and Mavs have been unable to fit that requirement as they conduct contact tracing following positive or inconclusive tests within their organizations. But for now, NBA fans don't need to worry about the season being postponed because league officials don't plan on doing that because they did expect some issues with the season and the pandemic.
