All second stage matches of the 2021-22 regular season of the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) league will be held in Changchun in northeast China's Jilin Province.

These matches had been scheduled to take place in both Changchun and Zhuji in east China's Zhejiang Province on December 25.

In a statement issued on Wednesday, the league's governing body said the revised decision was made in view of rising COVID-19 cases in Zhejiang Province and other regions of China.

The statement also left room for minor adjustments to the kick-off times of the second stage matches based on local prevention and control measures, with any adjustments to the schedule to be announced in due course.

After 13 rounds of matches in the league's first stage, the Liaoning Flying Leopards lead the 20-team table with a 12-1 record. They are followed by the Guangdong Southern Tigers, the Shenzhen Aviators and the Zhejiang Lions, all with a win-loss record of 11-2.
