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.
