The San Antonio Spurs Won't Play for a While

The NBA has postponed the San Antonio Spurs next three games, as four players have tested positive for COVID-19. 

The Spurs are enjoying a nice bounce-back season after missing the playoffs last year, as they sit 6th place in the Western Conference at 16-11. They were at the start of their annual Rodeo Road Trip, which takes place at the beginning of each February, and had won their first two games of the trip in Atlanta and Charlotte. The Hornets will also have their next two games postponed, as they were the most recent team to share the court with the Spurs. 

The players who tested positive have not yet been identified. With the All-Star Game coming up in just under three weeks (Sunday March 7), one has to wonder if moving forward with the game is a wise idea. Many players are speaking out about it, and common sense has to prevail at some point, no?
