Breaking: NBA postpones Hawks-Suns game

The Atlanta Hawks and Phoenix Suns have postponed their Wednesday night game. 

The decision comes two days after the Suns’ 128-107 loss to the Washington Wizards on Monday.

“Because of ongoing tracing within the Suns, the team does not have the league-required eight available players to proceed with tonight’s game against the Hawks,” the league said in its press release. 

The Hawks last played Monday night, a 112-94 win over the Philadelphia 76ers. 

Atlanta’s 5-5 record is fifth-best in the Eastern Conference, while the Suns, at 7-3, rank third in the Western Conference.

Atlanta travels to Salt Lake City on Friday to face the Utah Jazz.
