Wizards postpone Summer League game over virus issues
The Washington Wizards were forced to postpone an NBA Summer League game in Las Vegas on Sunday, lacking enough players to face the Indiana Pacers due to COVID-19 regulations.
The team announced late Saturday that guards Cassius Winston and Issuf Sanon and forward Isaiah Todd had entered NBA COVID-19 health and safety protocols.
The Wizards could not field a minimal roster due to Covid-19 contact tracing according to NBA health and safety rules.
The contest was to have been the Wizards’ opener in the off-season event, used mainly for rookies and second-year players.
Sanon, a 21-year-old rookie, is from Ukraine. Winston and Todd are Americans.
The Wizards’ lineup also includes Colombian rookie center Jaime Echenique and Mali forward Chieck Diallo, who was among three signed Saturday to help fill out the roster.
