The general managers talked about increasing roster sizes Monday, along with stiffening protocols about player interaction such as postgame handshakes and hugs, said a person familiar with the discussion. The league has now postponed four games since Sunday because of the virus situation among some teams.

Embiid's Sixers were forced to play their game against the Denver Nuggets on Saturday despite being severely shorthanded due to a positive COVID-19 test by guard Seth Curry.

Less than an hour after news broke of the Celtics-Heat postponement, Embiid tweeted the following apparent shots at the league. Following this game, Tatum was sidelined for possible COVID exposure and so was at least one of the Wizards. The people spoke with The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because neither the league nor the union had announced those measures. They beat the Phoenix Suns on Monday night, and are scheduled to play host to the Utah Jazz on Wednesday night.

With Kemba Walker and Romeo Langford unavailable because of injuries, the Celtics could have the minimum eight players required to start a game. "I have a sneaking feeling that there's going to be a lot of teams with this problem".

On Sunday, the Heat and the Celtics were facing a similar situation, but the league chose to postpone their game in contrast to their decision to let a short-handed Philly team go up against the Nuggets the day before.

The latest postponements will mark three consecutive days of lost games for the National Basketball Association after Miami's matchup on Sunday against the Celtics in Boston was called off because the Heat were unable to field a minimum eight players due to Covid-19 issues. That figure is expected to be updated later this week.
