UPDATE: Jan. 16, 10:45 a.m. — The Spurs are going to have their next three games postponed after four players tested positive for Covid-19, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported Tuesday morning. The Spurs also played the Charlotte Hornets on Sunday, so they’re undergoing contact tracing and we could see more postponements coming soon.
There are more postponements on the Hornets side. Charlotte will miss the next two games due to contact tracing. So Charlotte won’t play on Wednesday or Friday. The Spurs next chance to get back on the court would be next week against the Indiana Pacers on Monday, Feb. 22.
The game Tuesday between the Detroit Pistons and San Antonio Spurs will be postponed due to contact tracing and pending coronavirus test results, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported Monday. The Spurs just played the Charlotte Hornets on Sunday night, so we aren’t exactly sure how this will affect the rest of the League.

The Pistons last game was Sunday vs. the New Orleans Pelicans. The NBA announcement above suggests that the Spurs are the team that has a positive test. So look out for the Hornets next. Charlotte’s next game is Wednesday vs. the Chicago Bulls, so there’s a chance the Hornets are forced to postpone a game.
