Magic at Knicks game postponed due to MSG asbestos-related debris issuePosted by Inside Hoops
The Orlando Magic at New York Knicks game scheduled for tonight (November 2) will instead be played another night, and it’s possible that additional games in Madison Square Garden may have to be relocated.
Here is the information sent out by the Knicks:
Following last night’s Rangers game, during overnight maintenance of Madison Square Garden, which included cleaning asbestos-related materials in the attic above the ceiling, some debris fell into the Arena.
Out of an abundance of caution, we are postponing tonight’s Knicks v. Magic game. We will be working with the city and independent experts, ATC Associates and GCI Environmental Advisory, to evaluate and determine the most appropriate course of action. As the safety of our customers and employees are our top priority, we will not reopen the Garden until we are absolutely assured the Arena is safe.
Ticketholders are advised to retain their tickets, and return to nyknicks.com for rescheduling information. We will announce information about future events as soon as they have been determined.
Madison Square Garden apologizes for any inconvenience.
