Washington’s game Friday at the Milwaukee Bucks has been postponed by the NBA because the Wizards have too few players available due to coronavirus issues.

It is the Wizards’ sixth consecutive game that was scrapped.

The team had six players test positive for COVID-19 and three others sidelined after contract tracing determined they might have been exposed to the illness.

Washington hasn’t played since Jan. 11. It was allowed to resume practice Wednesday night.

The NBA said the game that was supposed to be at Milwaukee on Friday was “postponed due to the number of unavailable players for the Wizards, contact tracing for other players on their roster, and the length of time preceding the game during which the team was unable to practice.”
