Jazz-Wizards game on Wednesday postponed, league says.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) January 13, 2021
Because the Wizards do not have the required minimum players (8) the game cannot be played.

This means the Jazz will not have to play a back to back and it will end their road trip. It is not clear when the game will be played. The NBA has only released the first part of the schedule. They will likely just tack this game on at some point in the second half of the season and will announce this game as part of that release.
Utah has been lucky this season avoiding any large setbacks because of Covid diagnosis or contract tracing. The NBA released new guidelines recently and hopefully that helps keep setbacks for the season at a minimum.
