The latest round of COVID-19 testing in the NBA produced 11 positives out of the 502 players that were tested. The Athletic’s Shams Charania delivered the latest results from the NBA’s testing on Wednesday.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, in a tweet that directly followed Charania, echoed the same figures from the NBA’s recent round of testing.

On Wednesday, the Trail Blazers’ contest against the Grizzlies was postponed as the NBA conducts contact tracing that is primarily focused on Memphis. The postponement of the Blazers-Grizzlies game marks the 16th postponement of the 2020-21 regular season, the first for the Blazers.
