There will be five nationwide televised clashes (two on NBA TV, three on TNT), including a battle of former MVPs as Stephen Curry’s Warriors take on LeBron James’ Lakers to close the night.

NBA games postponed to MLK Day 2021

From Sunday evening, Cavs vs. Wizards is the only game that has been removed from the MLK Day Schedule. Due to contact tracing within the team, Washington does not have the minimum number of players required to play the game.

“We currently have nine players who are in protocol. Six have tested positive for COVID-19,” Wizards general manager Tommy Sheppard said on Friday. “We certainly won’t be able to play those games on Sunday and Monday. … It’s just an unfortunate set of circumstances.”
