Update: Golden State Warriors assistant coach, Dejan Milojevic, has sadly passed away at the age of 46.

The Utah Jazz have been rocking a very successful stretch of games as of late, and the hope was that when they met the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday, they would further extend that run. A run that has them on a six-game winning streak, a 9-1 record in their last 10, and a 15-4 record over their last 19.

A win over the Warriors would've meant so much for the 22-20 Jazz, especially as they continue to find their footing across this long season. But this impressive run will have to wait sometime to continue, as the upcoming game pitting the Jazz against the Warriors was put on hold.

The Warriors had a medical emergency involving assistant coach Dejan Milojevic, and the game for Wednesday night had to be postponed. We're not sure what the status of Mioljevic is at the moment, but the long-time Serbian player-turned-coach is at a hospital at the moment being tended to.

The Warriors said they will release an update when appropriate.

Obviously, there are bigger events than a basketball game, so it was the right call to postpone the game for the time being. That means, however, that the Jazz no longer play on Wednesday and fans will have to wait until the next game. But, luckily for them, the Jazz's faithful won't have to wait long, as the Jazz are set to play the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday night.

The postponed game with the Warriors probably won't have a rescheduled date anytime soon, but if we were to pick a time period when you could expect it to be made up, look to the end of the season. There's a good chance that when they do reschedule it, they'll look to put it at the end of the season, or around that time period.

Next. No, seriously, Collin Sexton has been All-Star levels of good as of late. No, seriously, Collin Sexton has been All-Star levels of good as of late. dark
