After a night of consulting with both teams and local authorities in a tense Minneapolis, the NBA has decided to reschedule the Nets-Timberwolves game for 4 p.m. ET TODAY.
Here’s the NBA’s announcement.
The game will be telecast on YES Network with pregame beginning at 3:30 p.m.
The game will also be broadcast on WFAN. There’s conflicting information on whether it will be carried on both AM and FM. We will be do our normal Clubhouse post-game. Details here.
Other details, including which players will likely be available, etc. have yet to be disclosed. Kyrie Irving, who was to miss Monday’s game because of family matters, did not travel. Steve Nash will speak with the media at 2:30 pm ET.
The Nets play the 76ers in a critical game Wednesday night in Philadelphia. The Nets who have been in Minneapolis since Sunday will likely fly to Philly directly following the game.
The game needed to be rescheduled after local authorities asked professional sports teams to postpone their Monday games in light of the tense situation in Minneapolis where the killing of a 20-year-old black man in a Minny suburb combined with the trial of Derek Chauvin, accused of killing George Floyd to spark protests.
Here’s our game preview from Monday. How much of it is still relevant remains to be seen.
