The Sacramento Kings canceled practice Thursday amid a COVID-19 outbreak that threatens their next game, ESPN and The Athletic reported.

Interim coach Alvin Gentry, forward Marvin Bagley III and guard Terence Davis entered the league’s health and safety protocols on Wednesday. There are multiple more positive tests, per the reports, that could force the NBA to postpone Sacramento’s game against visiting Memphis on Friday.

There are symptomatic cases with the organization, per The Athletic.

The Kings have shut down their facility as they test and retest players, coaches and staff, per the reports.

The Kings last played Wednesday night in a win over Washington, led by Doug Christie as acting head coach.
