NBA = American professional basketball announced on the 1st that the Raptors, to which Yuta Watanabe belongs, will cancel the match with the Pistons scheduled for the 2nd, based on the infection prevention regulations for the new coronavirus.

The Raptors announced that one player and six staff members, including Nick Nurse head coach, have been subject to the league's new coronavirus infection control regulations.

Watanabe is not subject to the regulations.

As a result, the Pistons match scheduled for the 2nd was canceled because the eight players required to enter the bench could not be prepared.

The Raptors have now canceled two games in a row, and the Pistons game is scheduled to be held on the 3rd, but it is unclear whether the game can be played.
