The NBA says Wednesday's game between the Utah Jazz and the Washington Wizards has been postponed because of COVID-19 protocols.

The league says because of contact tracing, the Wizards don't have the required eight available players to take the floor for their scheduled home game against the Jazz.

The Wizards said earlier Tuesday that two players had entered the league's protocols meant to curb the spread of the coronavirus, and the team cancelled practice.

The postponement is the fifth in the NBA since Sunday, including three involving the Boston Celtics.
