NBA Lockout: League Cancels Games Through December 15, According To Report

In what is mostly a formality at this point, the NBA has informed teams that all games up until December 15 have been cancelled, according to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski. Team executives got the memo earlier Tuesday.

That would technically mean the NBA lockout has yet to claim any games from the owners' proposed 72-game schedule, which was rejected when the NBA Players Association elected to disclaim interest to challenge the lockout in court. However, it only seems like a matter of time until those games go as well.

David Stern has previously suggested that cancellations will be dictated by the calendar and that the league will need 30 days to launch a season once a deal is reached. With this being November 15, and with the two sides seemingly further apart from an agreement than ever, we can probably expect even more cancellations to be announced in the coming days and weeks.
