Suns vs. Pacers being postponed on Saturday

The Suns will continue to not play games as the team is dealing with too many players in health and safety protocols.

The game Saturday between the Phoenix Suns and the Indiana Pacers has been postponed due to health and safety protocols. This is the third straight game the Suns won’t be able to play because players have been placed in health and safety protocols. Phoenix placed rookie center Jalen Smith in protocols earlier in the week and haven’t played since. The NBA has postponed over 10 games in the past two weeks because of Covid-19 concerns surrounding the NBA. The Suns still don’t have the required 8 players to field a team.

Like I said, we’re now in double digits in terms of teams having games postponed due to health and safety protocols. Two games have already been postponed for Friday, including the Washington Wizards vs. the Detroit Pistons, and the Suns vs. the Golden State Warriors. Stricter health and safety protocols are expected to be put into effect which will help ease the spread of Covid-19 throughout the NBA ranks.
