Michigan basketball's game against Penn State on Saturday afternoon has been postponed due to the Nittany Lions' issues with COVID-19, the program announced Wednesday night.

"Penn State men's basketball has paused all team-related activities due to positive COVID-19 results among its Tier 1 personnel," said Penn State in a statement. "Due to the pause, the Nittany Lions' home games against Michigan (Jan. 9) and Rutgers (Jan. 12) have been postponed.

"The institutions will work with the Big Ten Conference to identify rescheduling options. No determination has been made on how the pause may impact scheduled games beyond Jan. 12."

The two teams previously played in Ann Arbor on Dec. 13, with Michigan winning, 62-58.

This is the Wolverines' second game impacted by COVID issues this season. Their game against North Carolina State game, as a part of the ACC/Big Ten Challenge, was canceled. U-M replaced the Wolfpack with Toledo on the non-conference schedule.

The Nittany Lions have now had four games postponed, including Wisconsin on Jan. 3 and Wednesday's game against Ohio State.
