Nuggets-Hornets Friday game postponed due to contact tracing

Friday’s upcoming game between the Nuggets and Hornets has been postponed, the NBA announced on Tuesday morning, citing ongoing contact tracing stemming from the San Antonio-Charlotte game on Sunday.

The Spurs’ upcoming three games are all postponed along with the Hornets’ next two games after four Spurs players tested positive, the league announced.

The Nuggets (15-11) begin their East Coast swing on Tuesday night in Boston. They’ll face Washington on Wednesday before concluding the road trip on Sunday in Atlanta.

The postponement marks the only time before the All-Star break where the Nuggets will get consecutive days off.

It’s Denver’s second postponement this season after their Feb. 1 matchup against Detroit was postponed due to a false positive.
