NBA suspended its season after a Utah Jazz player tested positive for coronavirus, and league's owners were leaning toward games without fans. Now there will be no games.

The test result was reported before scheduled tip-off time for Utah at OKC on Wednesday night was called off. Players were on the floor for warmups when they were told to return to their locker rooms. About 30 minutes later, fans were told the game was postponed.
