The Minnesota Timberwolves-Brooklyn Nets game tonight has been postponed in the aftermath of the police shooting of Daunte Wright that caused unrest in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
The decision to postpone was made by the NBA after consultation with the Timberwolves organization and local and state officials, the league announced.
The Timberwolves-Nets game could be played on April 13 in Minneapolis, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.
The Nets play in Philadelphia against the 76ers on April 14, while the Timberwolves host the Milwaukee Bucks on April 14.
Wright, a 20-year-old Black man, was shot and killed by a police officer during a traffic stop on April 11 in the Minneapolis suburb of Brooklyn Center.
Brooklyn Center Police Chief Tim Gannon claims that the officer intended to use a taser, but instead grabbed the gun.
The Major League Baseball (MLB) game between the Minnesota Twins and Boston Red Sox has been postponed, as well as the National Hockey League (NHL) game between the Minnesota Wild and St. Louis Blues out of respect for the Minneapolis community.
