The NBA is all about making that money!

On Wednesday, the NBA announced that three games, two of which involve the Washington Wizards, were rescheduled. For the Wizards specifically, they are as follows:

  • The Portland Trail Blazers will play the Wizards in D.C. on Feb. 2 at 8 p.m. ET. This game was originally scheduled for the second half.
  • The Wizards road game vs. the Charlotte Hornets that was postponed on Jan. 20 is now happening on Feb. 7 at 1 p.m. ET.

A third game involving the Hornets hosting the Trail Blazers on Feb. 7 is now rescheduled for the second half, because the Hornets will be hosting the Wizards instead.

What’s the main takeaway from the announcement? It’s that the NBA doesn’t care whether a team is hampered by the coronavirus like the Wizards ... or really, anyone else. Since there is no bubble to give some level of protection from teams, players have to pray that nothing happens if they want a game to happen.

Here’s hoping that no one else on the Wizards gets the coronavirus during this dark winter for the next week, and the rest of the season.
