The Breakers were scheduled to meet the defending champion Perth Wildcats this evening in Adelaide, but after multiple players reported feeling unwell earlier in the week, their game was postponed by NBL officials last night.

At the time of the announcement, the NBL confirmed the team would have Covid testing done as a precaution.

“The Breakers were unable to travel from Adelaide after a number of their travelling party reported being unwell,” the NBL said in a statement on Saturday.

“They have since undergone precautionary Covid testing and will remain in Adelaide until they receive their results and are able to travel.”

The Breakers are now waiting to hear from officials when their postponed game will be as they now turn their focus to their next scheduled game - which also happens to be against the Wildcats – on Friday.

The Breakers have had a rough start to the NBL after relocating to Australia for the season, falling to 0-2 so far after losses to the 36ers.
