About 95% of the Friday edition of The Times had been delivered by 9:45 a.m. as the newspaper dealt with printing problems that delayed distribution.

"Papers are now being delivered and will continue to be throughout the early afternoon. The Times is making every effort to ensure the problem is rectified, and it is not necessary for home-delivery customers to call in to report problems in order to get a paper," Times Publisher Eddy Hartenstein said in a statement.

Subscribers across the city reported delays in getting their morning paper, though some received the paper on time.

"The production problems were unrelated to the Lakers' NBA championship win and the subsequent violence by some fans," Hartenstein said in the statement. "We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and frustration experienced."
