The Denver Nuggets’ home game Thursday against the Golden State Warriors was postponed hours before the scheduled tipoff due to COVID-19 protocol.

“The Nuggets do not have the league-required eight available players to proceed with the game against the Warriors,” the NBA said in a statement.

The Nuggets made the announcement Thursday afternoon on social media but did not provide further details.

Earlier in the day, reports said that Denver coach Michael Malone had entered the protocol. The Nuggets began the day with three players on the COVID-19 list: Jeff Green, Bones Hyland and Zeke Nnaji.
