The NBA announced Monday afternoon the postponement of the 11 games that were postponed to December due to the surge in COVID-19 cases in the league. The recent increase in COVID-19 cases has caused many teams to run out of players overnight, resulting in games being postponed.

In response, the NBA and the National Basketball Players Association have passed new changes to the league’s health and safety protocols to ensure that as few games as possible are postponed. Some of the new changes are a reduction in quarantine time for asymptomatic players who are no longer considered contagious and require teams to use hardship exceptions to add replacement players on 10-day contracts so matches can continue to be played.

Here are the times and dates of the 11 rescheduled games so far this season:
