Pelicans-Kings game postponed out of caution for coronavirus

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) The last scheduled NBA game before the league planned to suspend the season because a Utah Jazz player tested positive for the new coronavirus was postponed at the last minute because one of the officials worked a game with the infected player.

Officials announced that the game between the New Orleans Pelicans and Sacramento Kings had been postponed Wednesday night just minutes before the scheduled tipoff. The league said the decision was made out of an "abundance of caution" because official Courtney Kirkland had worked the Jazz game Monday night.

Utah star center Rudy Gobert tested positive for COVID-19, according to a person who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because neither the league nor the team had confirmed the identity of the player publicly.
