Thursday’s game pitting Brooklyn against the host Portland Trail Blazers has been postponed by the NBA due to COVID-19 issues involving the Nets’ roster.
The Nets, who have seen their last three games postponed, do not have the league-required eight players available for the contest. Their next scheduled game is Christmas Day against the host Los Angeles Lakers.
Star Kevin Durant, the NBA’s leading scorer at 29.7 points per game, joins James Harden and Kyrie Irving among 10 Brooklyn players in the league’s health and safety protocols.
The Nets (21-9) entered play on Wednesday with a 1 1/2-game lead over the Chicago Bulls in the NBA’s Eastern Conference.
The Trail Blazers (13-19) will return to action Monday against the visiting Dallas Mavericks.
