The NBA's Martin Luther King Jr. Day tradition continues this year with a nine-game table featuring some of the league's best stars.
It all starts at Madison Square Garden with a Monday afternoon game between Magic and Knicks, followed by a competition between the Timberwolves and Hawks in Atlanta, the birthplace of MLK. There will be five nationally televised matchups (two on NBA TV, three on TNT) including a former MVP battle in which Stephen Curry's Warriors will face LeBron James & # 39; Lakers to end the evening.
Here is everything you need to know about watching NBA games on MLK day, including a full schedule of TV channels and start times.

NBA games postponed on MLK day 2021
From Sunday evening Cavs vs. Wizards is the only game that has been removed from the MLK daily schedule. Due to contact tracing within the team, Washington does not have the minimum number of players required to play the game.
"We currently have nine players on record. Six have tested positive for COVID-19," said Tommy Sheppard, general manager of Wizards, on Friday. "We certainly won't be able to play these games on Sunday and Monday. … It's just an unfortunate circumstance."
