The Philadelphia 76ers’ struggles to find eight available players have led to Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Pelicans being postponed.
Three games in all have been postponed Sunday, with the Cavaliers-Hawks and Nuggets-Nets contests also being called off because of COVID-19 issues.
- Cavs-Hawks postponed due to virus outbreak
- Nets’ next 2 games postponed due to COVID
- Sources: NBA discussing replacement player planAdrian Wojnarowski and Baxter Holmes
Sources said there is optimism the Sixers will be able to resume play in Boston on Monday.
League sources told ESPN earlier this week that the NBA and National Basketball Players Association were discussing a plan that would require teams decimated by COVID-19 to sign additional replacement players to avoid games being postponed.
