The Brooklyn Nets season opener against the New York Knicks scheduled for Thursday night was postponed Wednesday because of the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy and damage to the city's transit system, the New York Times reports.

New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg made the announcement after NBA spokesman Tim Frank said yesterday the game would go on as scheduled despite the damage to the area caused by Hurricane Sandy. Brooklyn plays host to the Toronto Raptors on Saturday and the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday.

Service to several subway stations leading to the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn are still suspended and no make up date for the game has been announced.

Knicks general manager Glen Grunwald said the team's game against the Miami Heat will be played Friday at Madison Square Garden in midtown Manhattan.

SI.com reported Tuesday that the NBA is watching developments and assessing the situation as far as other games on the week’s schedule.
