The Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Regular Season Round 18 game between Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul and Real Madrid, originally scheduled to be played on Wednesday, December 29, has been suspended.

Madrid requested the suspension after several team members tested positive for COVID-19, which leaves it without the minimum eight players on the Authorization List fit to play.

Following the Special Regulations due to COVID-19, approved by the ECA Shareholders Executive Board, each game can be rescheduled up to three times, if there are available dates.

Euroleague Basketball will coordinate with both teams the best options to reschedule the game. Alternative dates will be announced on official EuroLeague Basketball platforms once confirmed.

It is the third suspended EuroLeague match this season. The other two were related to AX Armani Exchange Milan's COVID-19 outbreak. The Italian squad did not play a match against Zalgiris Kaunas last week and will not compete in the upcoming duel versus ALBA Berlin.

Real now have 10 COVID-19 cases in the team, including Sergio Llull, Jeffery Taylor, Adam Hanga, Anthony Randolph, Guerschon Yabusele, Juan Nunez, Vincent Poirier, Fabien Causeur, Thomas Heurtel, and bench boss Pablo Laso.
