Pelicans-Spurs Game Postponed

7:55pm: The issue with the postponement concerns a potential coronavirus exposure to a non-team member of the traveling parties for both teams in recent days, Andrew Lopez of ESPN tweets.

6:34pm: The NBA postponed Monday’s scheduled game between the Spurs and Pelicans, according to a league press release.

What made this late postponement even more noteworthy was that both teams did not have the league-required eight available players due to COVID-19 contact tracing.

The Pelicans had a January 11 postponement due to coronavirus issues surrounding the Mavericks. This is the first game for which they have not had enough players due to COVID-19 positives and contact tracing. This is the first postponement of any kind for San Antonio.

It’s the 22nd game that the league has postponed due to health and safety protocols.
