NBA postpones Friday’s Warriors vs. Suns game due to COVID-19 health and safety protocols

The Golden State Warriors’ upcoming three-game road swing has been shortened to only two contests. On Wednesday, Golden State’s road tilt against the Suns in Phoenix has been postponed by the NBA due to COVID 19 health and safety protocols.

Following Phoenix’s contest in Washington on Monday, two members of the Wizards entered the league’s health and safety protocol. After contract tracing, the Suns won’t have the league required eight players against the Warriors. The Suns contest against the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday was also postponed.

Nine games across the NBA have been delayed this season due to COVID-19 health and safety protocols.
