Hurricane Sandy won't affect NBA opening night, league 'assessing' other games

Hurricane Sandy, which left millions without power as it swept through on Monday night, won't have an affect on the NBA's opening night, according to a report from NBC Sports. The games scheduled for Tuesday night are in cities unaffected by the storm and include: the Wizards and Cavs in Cleveland, the Celtics and Heat in Miami, and the Mavs and Lakers in L.A.

Games later in the week, particularly those to be played in New York and Philadelphia, are still questionable. Tim Frank, the league's Senior Vice President of Basketball Communications, tweeted:

The Nuggets are scheduled to play the Sixers in Philadelphia on Wednesday night, and the Knicks kick off their season against the Nets in the new Barclay's Center in Brooklyn on Thursday; both Philadelphia and New York were hit hard by the storm. The Barclay's Center is at least in practicing condition, according to the New York Times's Howard Beck:

Whether or not power outages have been restored and the subway system is back up and running will affect the league's decision on the Knicks-Nets game.
