According to the New York Times’ Marc Stein and multiple other reporters, the Clippers’ game tomorrow night against the Los Angeles Lakers has been postponed following the sudden death of Kobe Bryant, one of the biggest stars in league history and a lifelong Laker.

Bryant and eight others, including his 13-year-old daughter and two of her basketball teammates, died Sunday in a helicopter crash, leaving the league and the city of Los Angeles reeling.

Tuesday’s postponement allows players and staff from both teams, who have long considered Bryant an icon, friend, teammate, and fierce opponent, a chance to mourn.
