The NBA has postponed Tuesday night’s game between the Los Angeles Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers following the death of former Lakers star Kobe Bryant.

The move by the League is out of respect for the Lakers organization, which is grieving the loss of Bryant, who passed away in a helicopter accident on Sunday afternoon. The NBA opted not to postpone games on Sunday, and as of now it doesn’t appear the League has plans to postpone any other games taking place on Tuesday.

So with this game no longer on the schedule, be sure to check your fantasy basketball lineups prior to lock on Tuesday’s slate. Also be mindful of any players who may be impacted in DFS.
