The game Sunday between the Philadelphia 76ers and Oklahoma City Thunder has been postponed due to health and safety protocols. The Sixers do not have the required 8 players to field a full roster. This is due to contact tracing surrounding Covid-19, though the Sixers haven’t announced if any new players have been placed into health and safety protocols. The Sixers had already ruled out Joel Embiid and Mike Scott, both of whom did not travel with the team during their weekend road trip.
