Warriors' game vs. Suns on Friday postponed due to COVID-19


The Warriors' three-game road trip will be impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak affecting the NBA at the moment.

Golden State's game in Phoenix on Friday has been postponed due to contact tracing surrounding the Suns, who won't have the required eight players needed to play the game.

The NBA made the announcement Wednesday, while also postponing Friday's game between the Washington Wizards and Detroit Pistons.

The Suns' game against the Atlanta Hawks, which was scheduled for Wednesday night, was postponed because Phoenix played in Washington on Monday. The Wizards are dealing with their own contact tracing issues and had their game Wednesday against the Utah Jazz postponed as well.

The Warriors are set to take on the Nuggets in Denver on Thursday and that game still is expected to proceed as scheduled. The road trip concludes Monday in Los Angeles against the defending champion Lakers.

Golden State had their own COVID-19 scare this week when second-year pro Eric Paschall was held out of Tuesday's game against the Indiana Pacers due to the Health and Safety Protocols. But on Wednesday, it was determined that Paschall received a false-positive coronavirus test result, and he rejoined the team for practice.

If the Warriors and Suns are unable to make up the game during the normal course of the first half of the schedule, they likely would make up the game in early March before the second half of the 2020-21 season begins.
