ANKARA (AA) – Struck by four positive coronavirus tests, upcoming San Antonio Spurs matches have been postponed.

The move, sources told ESPN, comes as the "Spurs have four positive tests for the coronavirus," Adrian Wojnarowski said on Twitter Tuesday.

"The San Antonio Spurs’ next three games (Wednesday, Feb. 17 at Cleveland; Saturday, Feb. 20 at New York and Monday, Feb. 22 at Indiana) and the Charlotte Hornets’ next two games (Wednesday, Feb. 17 vs. Chicago and Friday, Feb. 19 vs. Denver) have been postponed in accordance with the NBA’s Health and Safety Protocols," the NBA said in a statement.

Wojnarowski added that "Charlotte is undergoing contact tracing" and the Charlotte Hornets' next two matches will also be postponed.

He added that Spurs have been in quarantine in Charlotte since Sunday.

The Spurs beat the Hornets 122-110 in Charlotte's Spectrum Center on Sunday night.
