The UCLA men’s basketball game at Stanford scheduled for Thursday has been postponed due to COVID-19 protocols within the Stanford program, the university announced Sunday.

A rescheduled date for the game will be announced when it has been finalized with the Pac-12 Conference.

The Bruins have added one previously postponed home game against Arizona State on Wednesday, which will begin at 7:30 p.m. at Pauley Pavilion. Fans with tickets for the previously scheduled date for the game can show their tickets for admission on Wednesday.

Wednesday’s scheduled game against the Sun Devils would be UCLA’s first since Dec. 11 when it defeated Marquette, 67-56, improving to 8-1. Each of the Bruins’ next five scheduled games were canceled or postponed.

UCLA’s schedule this week also includes a road game at California on Saturday.

Previously, the Bruins’ were scheduled to face Arizona on Dec. 30 and Arizona State on Jan. 1. Both of those Pac-12 games were postponed due to COVID-19 protocols within UCLA’s program.

The Bruins remained fourth in the first Associated Press Top 25 poll released after the Marquette game, then dropped one spot to fifth in the poll released Dec. 20. They were also fifth in the poll released Tuesday.
