In the last few minutes, reports say the game against the Philadelphia 76ers has been called off. The game has been postponed due to contact tracing. Philadelphia do not have enough players to meet the league-required eight available players which means that this game will be played at a later date. David Aldridge of The Athletic reported the details.
