COVID-19 strikes again

Well, this certainly isn’t good news.

The NBA postponed Sunday’s Philadelphia 76ers-Oklahoma City Thunder game roughly 90 minutes before tipoff at Chesapeake Energy Arena due to COVID-19 contact tracing efforts involving Philadelphia.

The Sixers did not have enough players to play Oklahoma City as a result.

This is Philly’s second COVID-19 scare in the last two weeks alone. Seth Curry tested positive 10 days ago during the Sixers’ game against the Brooklyn Nets, forcing the team to briefly quarantine in New York.

The Boston Celtics are scheduled to visit the Sixers this Wednesday and Friday.

Philadelphia played the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday, the Miami Heat on Tuesday and the Atlanta Hawks on Monday.
