The NBA has called off five games for Sunday, Monday and Tuesday because of coronavirus-related concerns.

The postponements involve nine teams. Called off were three Sunday games: Cleveland at Atlanta, Denver at Brooklyn and New Orleans at Philadelphia.

Also called off were Orlando's game at Toronto on Monday and Washington's game at Brooklyn on Tuesday.

Atlanta Hawks guard Trae Young has been placed in the league's health and safety protocols, as has Los Angeles Lakers coach Frank Vogel, as coronavirus numbers around the league continue to rise.
