The Minnesota Timberwolves, after consultation with the NBA and with local and state officials, moved Wednesday’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks to 3:30 p.m. local time (4:30 p.m. ET) at Target Center.

The afternoon game will be played without fans. Fans who purchased tickets to the game will receive a full refund.

This move follows the team’s decision to play Tuesday’s rescheduled game against the Brooklyn Nets without fans at 3 p.m. local time.

The Timberwolves-Nets game was postponed from Monday due to civil unrest in the Minneapolis area.

On Sunday, Daunte Wright, a 20-year-old Black man, was fatally shot by a police officer during a traffic stop in suburban Brooklyn Center. The death prompted violent protests on Sunday and into Monday.

The tragedy involving Wright occurred as the trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin continues in Minneapolis. Chauvin, who is white, is being tried for last May’s death of George Floyd, a Black man.
