As a result, more than 10 games have been postponed.

Per NBA rules, a game is only postponed when a team has fewer than eight available players, but that issue had largely been avoided due to the NBA’s hardship exemption, which grants teams temporary roster spots in the event of an outbreak or several serious injuries.

Ten weeks into the 2021-22 NBA season, the league is feeling the effects of the latest wave of COVID-19.

In the first few weeks of the season, 16 players were placed in the league’s COVID health and safety protocols, which sideline any player testing positive for COVID-19 for a minimum of five days. December marked a sharp increase.

Jazz French pivot Rudy Gobert was placed on the list of players required to undergo the anti-Covid protocol, his team announced Thursday, and will miss at least Utah’s next three NBA games, all of which are played on the road.

The isolation period for players testing positive for Covid is five days, according to league rules, provided they are asymptomatic and test negative twice within 24 hours.

Gobert, who joins teammate Joe Ingles in this protocol, will therefore remain at home while his teammates will take a mini road-trip taking them to Toronto on Friday, Indiana on Saturday and Detroit on Monday.
