The NBA pushed back the start of Monday's game between the host Miami Heat and Detroit Pistons by five hours due to health and safety protocols.

The game was scheduled for 3 p.m. but now will tip off at 8 p.m.

The delay is reportedly to allow for more COVID-19 testing to be processed. The Heat listed Avery Bradley and Jimmy Butler as out due to health and safety protocols on their Sunday night injury report.
