Four of these games have impacted the Portland Trail Blazers with two home games against the Memphis Grizzlies postponed in January. The Blazers were also given an extra game against the Washington Wizards in the nation’s capital on Febraury 2. A later game against the Charlotte Hornets in North Carolina was postponed after initially being scheduled for February 7.
