The Oregon Ducks men's basketball program has paused all team-related activities for the second time this season, the program announced Tuesday afternoon.

The upcoming Los Angeles road trip which included two games against No. 23 UCLA has been postponed. It's the third time a game between Oregon and UCLA has been postponed this season. 

First, the game on December 23rd at Matthew Knight Arena was postponed because of a COVID-19 positive test with the referees and the rescheduling was postponed again when the Ducks paused activities the first time.

It is unknown if a player, coach, or member of the staff tested positive or if this is all due to contact tracing protocols put in place for safety reasons. Regardless, the Ducks won't be in action for at least another week. 

Oregon lost to Oregon State last Saturday while only having eight scholarship players, the minimum to play a college basketball game. 

Rescheduled dates for those games will be announced when finalized.

The next scheduled game for Oregon (9-3, 4-2) is hosting Washington State on Thursday, February 4th at 8:00 p.m. PT on FS1.
