The Toronto Raptors will have their second straight game postponed with the NBA pushing back their matchup vs. the Detroit Pistons, per The Athletic’s Shams Charania. The Raptors are dealing with a Covid-19 outbreak and were unable to field a team for their game against the Chicago Bulls over the weekend. Pascal Siakam, Nick Nurse, and around five members of the coaching staff were placed in health and safety protocols. The game is being reschedule for Wednesday.
The Raptors-Pistons game Tuesday has been postponed and tentatively rescheduled for Wednesday.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) March 2, 2021
This game is tentatively rescheduled to the next day, so we’ll see if it ends up getting pushed back any further. The All-Star Break is going to start on Friday and run through next week until Wednesday. The League cut down the break because of all the postponed games — we’re up over 30 now. If this game can’t be played on Wednesday, it may be moved to next Wednesday. Keep an eye on the news but for now, expect a shorter slate for Tuesday.
