The Latest on the effects of the coronavirus outbreak on sports around the world:


A positive COVID-19 test and ensuing contact tracing at Temple have postponed the Owls’ next two basketball games.

The American Athletic Conference announced the postponements on Thursday. Temple had been set to host Memphis on Saturday and visit Tulane on Tuesday. The games have not been rescheduled yet.

Temple beat SMU 79-71 on Wednesday.


Arizona Cardinals safety Chris Banjo will not play Sunday after being placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

The decision by the team Thursday comes with Arizona (8-7) set to play at the Los Angeles Rams (9-6) in a regular-season finale and two playoff berths potentially on the line. The Cardinals need a win to get in. The Rams need a win or a loss by the Chicago Bears.
