The Wizards-Bucks game on Friday has been postponed.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) January 21, 2021
Washington continues to deal with an outbreak that’s seen seven players on the roster test positive. They haven’t played a game since January 11, but were hopeful to return to practice as of Wednesday, January 20. Here’s hoping that all of their players and staff are able to make a full recovery.
As for the Bucks, this was their first postponement of the season. Or really, interruption (beyond the obvious health and safety protocols) due to COVID-19, as they’ve thankfully been able to avoid any positive tests that we know of. They faced off against a Mavericks team last week who were down several players due to contact tracing and positive tests within that organization.
