For the same reason, the Wizards, represented by Dāvis Bertāns and Anžeja Pasečnik, did not play the Utah Jazz match on Wednesday.
In total, three of the ten scheduled games did not take place on Wednesday.
It is known that the Washington club is still under investigation in the internal chain, so it is not possible to apply for eight players. On Monday, the Wizards met with the Phoenix Dog, which announced on Wednesday that it would not play the Atlanta Hawks for safety reasons.
Meanwhile, ESPN surveyor Eidrien Vodzhnarovsky, referring to sources close to the situation, reports that the Wizards team has discovered the third case of Covid-19. It was previously reported that after Monday’s game with the Dog, two Wizards basketball players – Hachimur and Wagner – were subjected to NBA health and safety protocols.
Also, the “Dog” will not go to the square on Friday, when a game against the Golden State “Warriors” was planned.
With the start of the fourth week of the new NBA season, a total of nine games have already been canceled.
On Wednesday, the NBA announced that 497 players have been tested for Covid-19 since January 6, of which 16 have tested positive.
On Tuesday, the league management and the players’ association (NBPA) agreed on stricter rules for restricting Covid-19. For the next two weeks, all players and coaches are asked to be at their homes if the team has returned home. These rules do not apply to events organized by the team.
It is planned to play 72 games in the NBA Main Event, which is ten less than usual.
The league has started the season without spectators present in the arenas, as the restrictions of the coronavirus prohibit larger public gatherings in the premises.
