Washington Wizards cleared to resume practicing after coronavirus outbreak

The Washington Wizards announced on Wednesday night that they've been cleared to return to practice. Washington's past five games have been postponed because of a coronavirus outbreak within the team.

The Wizards haven't played since Jan. 11, and they are scheduled to play next at the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday.

The Wizards said Deni Avdija, Davis Bertans, Troy Brown Jr., Rui Hachimura, Ish Smith and Moritz Wagner are listed as out for that game because of health & safety protocols.

Thomas Bryant (left ACL) and Russell Westbrook (left quad) are also listed as out.

The NBA has postponed 16 games this season because of the coronavirus.
