The Denver Nuggets’ home game Thursday against the Golden State Warriors was postponed hours before the scheduled announcement due to COVID-19 protocol.

The Nuggets made the announcement Thursday afternoon on social media but did not provide more details.

Earlier today, reports said Denver coach Michael Malone had entered into protocol. The Nuggets started the day with three players on the COVID-19 roster: Jeff Green, Bones Hyland and Zeke Nnaji.

Four other players were deemed dubious on entry Thursday: Aaron Gordon (hamstrings), Monte Morris (knee), Austin Rivers (thumb) and Vlatko Cancar (non-COVID disease). Eight healthy players are needed for a team to compete.

Golden State, meanwhile, is without Draymond Green, Damion Lee and Moses Moody due to COVID-19.
