Spurs-Pelicans game called off, as NBA's virus woes continue

San Antonio's game in New Orleans was called off Monday night in the latest virus-related postponement for the NBA, one that came when the league determined that neither team would have enough players available.

As has been the case with most of the other games that have been postponed, contact tracing was cited as the cause. But instead of it involving just one team - as has been the case with each of the season's previous 21 postponements prior to Monday - this one involved both clubs.

"Because of ongoing contact tracing within both the Spurs and Pelicans, neither team has the league-required eight available players to proceed with the scheduled game," the NBA said, sending that announcement less than two hours before the planned tip-off time.
