According to well-known reporter Shams Charania, the NBA announced that sources revealed that since January 14, 502 players in the NBA have been tested for the new crown virus, with 11 players being positive.
From January 7 to January 14, a total of 16 players have tested positive for the virus, bringing the total number of confirmed cases in the past two weeks to 27.
The increase in the number of confirmed cases and the related contact tracing have caused multiple games to be delayed. As of today, the NBA has postponed a total of 16 games, including 9 games last week.
It is worth mentioning that the NBA official reported that because the Memphis Grizzlies could not meet the minimum requirement of eight players, the Grizzlies vs. Trail Blazers game originally scheduled to be held was postponed. This is the second game of the Grizzlies that was postponed. In addition, this is also the 16th game postponed by the NBA this season.
