NBA officially cancels first week of preseason games

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV/AP) -

The NBA has postponed training camps indefinitely and canceled 43 preseason games because it has not reached a new labor deal with players.

Camps were expected to open Oct. 3. The league announced Friday that all games from Oct. 9-15 are off and further decisions will be made as warranted.

The cancellations were expected after the latest meeting between owners and players Thursday ended without a collective bargaining agreement. Both sides still hope the entire regular season, scheduled to begin Nov. 1, can be saved.
