The NBA released the following statement Monday afternoon:

"The National Basketball Association announced today that in light of the tragic events in the Minneapolis area yesterday, tonight’s game between the Brooklyn Nets and the Minnesota Timberwolves at Target Center has been postponed. The decision to postpone was made by the NBA after consultation with the Timberwolves organization and local and state officials. 

Our thoughts remain with the family and friends of Daunte Wright during this difficult time."

KSTP Sports is working on the possible reschedule date, which could come as soon as Tuesday night, a common open night for both teams.

In a statement via email, the Wolves and Lynx express their sympathies to the family of Daunte Wright.
