Following the postponement of the Unicaja Malaga versus Joventut Badalona matchup Friday, two more games of the ACB regular season Round 1 suffered the same fate Saturday. The scheduled matches between Monbus Obradoiro against Urbas Fuenlabrada and Iberostar Tenerife versus Casademont Zaragoza will not take place during the weekend.

Similar to Malaga, Obradoiro and Zaragoza reported a positive coronavirus test in their teams. The league confirmed the decision to postpone two more games noting its intention to reschedule those contests as soon as possible, depending on whether the people returning positive results in the initial tests are cleared.

The teams mentioned are following protocols implemented by health authorities in Spain and the ACB.
