The NBA has postponed scheduled meetings on Sunday and Monday between the Washington Wizards and Cleveland Cavaliers in accordance with the league's health and safety protocols, the Wizards announced Friday.

Six Wizards players have tested positive for COVID-19, and three more are in health and safety protocols, Washington general manager Tommy Sheppard said Friday, according to ESPN's Tim Bontemps.

Washington won't have the mandated minimum of eight players available for either game against Cleveland.

It's unknown which individuals contracted the virus. However, forward Rui Hachimura and center Moe Wagner were questionable for Wednesday's contest against the Utah Jazz due to health and safety protocols.

Washington's matchup versus Utah was eventually postponed, and so was the team's next game against the Detroit Pistons on Friday.

Meanwhile, the Wizards' most recent opponent, the Phoenix Suns, hasn't played since Monday's game in the nation's capital. The NBA called off the Suns' next three contests due to contact tracing within the organization.
