If you were worried about having to split your attention between the NFL Divisional Round and the Sixers tonight, worry no more:
The Sixers postponement is due to contact tracing connected with the game against the Grizzlies on Saturday night, sources tell ESPN.

I’m told Memphis had COVID issue today and Sixers want to make sure all their players and staff are safe and are doing contact tracing https://t.co/uYAndvHOxz

Not yet, anyway. But as our lead Sixers writer put it, how much longer can the NBA go on like this?
Can the NBA just please do the smart thing and shut it down for 2 weeks, get this sorted out, and then go from there?
