The Nets' game in Portland against the Trail Blazers this Thursday has been postponed because Brooklyn does not have enough players to play due to COVID, the league announced Wednesday.

The postponement of Thursday's game follows games that were postponed against the Denver Nuggets on Sunday and Golden State Warriors Tuesday.

Said the NBA in a statement:

"The Nets do not have the league-required eight available players to proceed with the game against the Trail Blazers."

The Nets are loaded with players in COVID-19 health and safety protocols, including Kevin Durant, James Harden, Kyrie Irving, LaMarcus Aldridge, and Bruce Brown.

The Nets, after previously saying Irving would not be with the team until he was vaccinated, brought him back on a limited basis because of how decimated they were due to COVID, but he landed in protocol on Saturday.
