Miami Heat were not able to maintain eight players in their roster and that’s the reason the NBA decided the postponement of the game between the Heat and the Spurs Wednesday.

The Heat said Wednesday that Zylan Cheatham, P.J. Tucker and Gabe Vincent entered the health and safety protocols, while Jimmy Butler, Markieff Morris and KZ Okpala would be out with injury.

As a result, the NBA officially announced the postponement of the game. The NBA has postponed 10 games so far this season, all in the last two weeks.

The Heat are on a four-game winning streak, despite the fact they were undermanned in those games. Next game for Miami is against the Rockets on Friday.

The Spurs return to action on Friday vs the Grizzlies with Memphis having also several players in the NBA’s health and safety protocols.
