The International Wheelchair Basketball Federation (IWBF) have announced the postponement of the draw for the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics, amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Along with the host national body the Japanese Wheelchair Basketball Federation (JWBF), the decision was made to move the draw to a later date due to health and safety concerns.
IWBF President Ulf Mehrens said that the health and safety of those involved was "paramount".
"The unprecedented nature of this situation and the growing level of uncertainty across the world has compelled the decision not only to limit the attendance at the draw but to postpone the event to a future date," he said.
"Like all organisations, we are operating in a fast-moving environment with the information that is available to us.
"For now, we would like to thank you for your understanding and patience."
The draw was set to coincide with a Paralympic Games site visit from the IWBF Technical Delegation, which has also been postponed.
It is planned to go ahead despite uncertainty about wheelchair basketball's status on the Paralympic programme.
The International Paralympic Committee warned in January that the sport will be removed from the Games unless the governing body implements an approved action plan to improve athlete classification by May 29.
Wheelchair basketball was also dropped from the Paris 2024 programme "with immediate effect", but will be reinstated if the IWBF becomes fully compliant with the IPC Athlete Classification Code by an August 2021 deadline.
A "productive" meeting is said to have been held between both parties in Brazil this month.
There have now been more than 221,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19 to date, with more than 9,000 deaths related to the virus.
