More NBA games called off as contact tracing probes continue

COVID-19 didn't keep Miami center Bam Adebayo out of any games last season, even though he tested positive for the virus not long before the NBA's restart bubble opened.

He has missed two games this season because of the virus - without having the virus.

Adebayo is one of many players sidelined this season by contact tracing, the method of figuring out who may have possibly been exposed to a person who has tested positive for COVID-19. It has been a major factor in the decisions to postpone 20 games so far this season, including the latest three Memphis Grizzlies' games that the league decided Thursday to push back.
