Detroit Pistons’ game at Denver Nuggets postponed because of positive COVID-19 test
The Detroit Pistons’ Western road trip hit a speed bump on Monday night when their game against the Denver Nuggets was postponed by the NBA because of COVID-19 issues.
A person familiar with the decision who requested anonymity confirmed that someone within the Pistons’ organization had tested positive for the coronavirus.
It’s the second time this season the Pistons have had a game postponed because of the NBA’s contact tracing rules, which left them without the required minimum eight players.
Detroit’s Jan. 13 home game against the Wizards was postponed because of contact tracing issues on Washington’s side.
It’s unclear how many games the Pistons will have postponed because of the positive test. They have three games remaining on their Western Conference road trip — against the Utah Jazz on Tuesday, Phoenix Suns on Friday and Los Angeles Lakers Saturday.
