The New Zealand Breakers will have to wait a little bit longer to return to the NBL court after their game against the Wildcats in Perth on Friday was postponed.

The NBL postponed the game in alignment with the five-day lockdown announced by the Western Australian government yesterday.

The Breakers were scheduled to play last night against the Wildcats, but that was also postponed after players from the Kiwi franchise were unable to travel from Adelaide due to a number of them reporting they felt unwell.

The NBL confirmed yesterday the team has since undergone precautionary Covid-19 testing, with all players returning negative results, clearing them to resume training in Adelaide.

New dates for the postponed games have yet to be determined.

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.
