The NBA has postponed the game between the Washington Wizards and Utah Jazz on Jan. 13 due to health and safety protocols.

The Wizards don’t have the league-required eight players available due to COVID-19 contact tracing.

This will be the sixth postponed game of the season.

The Wizards cancelled practice on Jan. 12, as two players entered the NBA’s health and safety protocols.

Those two players were later revealed to be Rui Hachimura and Moritz Wagner.

The league will be probing to understand how long players may have been in contact with COVID-19-positive teammates and opponents during recent days, before, during and after games, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.
