Report: NBA to scrap two more weeks Tuesday

October 24, 2011 |  9:25 pm


The NBA is expected Tuesday to cancel more than 100 additional games from Nov. 15 to 28, the New York Daily News reported late Monday.

League and union officials did not immediately respond to The Times’ requests for confirmation of the report.

The cancellations would come more than two weeks after the league on Oct. 10 scrapped 100 games from the Nov. 1 season-openers through Nov. 14.

NBA owners have locked out their players since July 1; players and owners are trying to resolve issues that include how to split basketball-related income in the increasingly bitter labor dispute.

Losing the Nov. 15-28 games would cost the Clippers eight games, including a road swing to Houston, San Antonio and Utah, with home games against the Chicago Bulls and Oklahoma City Thunder.

The Lakers would lose five games, including a Nov. 17 home game against the New York Knicks and a Nov. 23 trip to Oklahoma City.
