NBA postpones camps, cancels 43 preseason games

September 23, 2011 12:00:00 AM PDT
The NBA announced on Friday that it has postponed training camps indefinitely and canceled 43 preseason games because a new labor deal has not been reached with players.

All games from Oct. 9-15 have been canceled. Training camps were expected to open Oct. 3.

The cancellations came after the latest talks ended without a collective bargaining agreement.

The regular season is scheduled to begin Nov. 1. Both sides say they hope a deal can be reached by then.
