Detroit returned a positive/inconclusive coronavirus test on a player, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. The Pistons were watching pregame film when they learned of the postponement.
The NBA recently made the decision to postpone games in the situation of a single test potentially coming back positive.
Detroit was set to play the second game of a five-city Western Conference trip in Denver on Monday. They have games scheduled against the Jazz (Tuesday), Suns (Friday) and Lakers (Saturday). More testing will need to be done before there’s clarity on Detroit’s ability to play on this week, sources said.
This is the 23rd game postponed due to COVID-19 this season.
