Wolves-Nets postponed due to civil unrest, game could be played Tuesday

Monday night's game between the Brooklyn Nets and the Minnesota Timberwolves has been postponed due to civil unrest in the City of Minneapolis, according to The Athletic.

ESPN was the first to report that the game may be postponed. 

Over the weekend, a police officer shot and killed 20-year-old Duante Wright in Brooklyn Center, a suburb of Minneapolis. The police explanation included that the officer mistakenly discharged a single shot from her gun, killing Wright, instead of using her taser during a traffic stop. 

The Minnesota Twins were set to play the Boston Red Sox in MLB action on Monday night at Target Field, which is next door to Target Center, and that game has been postponed. According to ESPN, the NHL game between the Minnesota Wild and St. Louis Blues may be postponed as well. 

According to ESPN, the game could be made up on Tuesday night.
