The Coronavirus has inevitably struck the NBA as rising concerns have prompted the Warriors to host the Nets with fans being banned from the arena. Ticket holders who planned to attend the game will be issued a refund as well.
Warriors team president Rick Welts met with San Francisco Mayor London Breed on Wednesday morning where the decision was made with approval by NBA.
The San Francisco Health Office ordered all events that could hold 1,000 or more people to be prohibited. The Warriors also announced that other events at the Chase Center through March 21 — consisting of three concerts and a G League game — would be canceled or postponed.
