The Boston Celtics-Miami Heat, suspended by COVID

The Florida franchise received an inconclusive result on one of its tests. He did not have the minimum of eight players for the duel.


The Boston Celtics-Miami Heat, which was to be played at 01:00 Spanish time, has become the second NBA game to be suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic. The first was the Houston Rockets-Oklahoma City Thunder on December 23. This Saturday's Sixers-Nuggets was close after Philadelphia had only eight active players, one of them, Mike Scott, did not take to the court due to injury.

And to everyone's surprise, the cause was the Florida franchise and not the Massachusetts franchise, which was presented to the duel at the TD Garden with only eight players, the limit established not to suspend the match: Tacko Fall, Aaron Nesmith, Payton Pritchard , Marcus Smart, Daniel Theis, Tremont Waters, Carsen Edwards, and Jeff Teague.

Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Tristan Thompson, Semi Ojeleye, Grant Williams, Robert Williams, and Javonte Green are steeped in health security protocols. Tatum and Robert Williams are positive for the disease. Kemba Walker and Romeo Langford, meanwhile, are injured.

According to Shams Charania, the problem occurred when one of the tests that Heat players had to pass gave an inconclusive result. That is, neither positive nor negative. This left Miami with less than the magic number due to contact tracing.
