Report: NBA G League Postpones Season as Players Called Up to NBA amid COVID OutbreakDecember 24, 2021
The G League has reportedly postponed the resumption of its season until Jan. 5 amid the NBA's leaguewide COVID-19 outbreak leading to several callups.
Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium reported the decision was made in part because of the rise in COVID-19 cases nationwide and the NBA gutting G League rosters in recent weeks.
The G League was originally slated to return to play Monday after the conclusion of its showcase in Las Vegas.
Charania's report did not indicate whether any games will be canceled as part of the postponement.
The regular season is supposed to last through April 2, with 28 of the league's 30 teams participating. This is the first traditional regular season that the G League has conducted since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.
