Scariolo is left without his 2nd game as head coach

The NBA announces the suspension of the Toronto Raptors-Chicago Bulls by not counting those of Canada with the eight players required by COVID-19.


The NBA announced this Sunday that the game between Toronto Raptors and Chicago Bulls, which was to be played this Sunday, has been suspended due to COVID-19. The North American League alleges that the Canadian franchise does not have enough players (eight) for the match against the Illinois franchise due to health security protocols.

In this way, the second match as head coach of Sergio Scariolo remains in the air. The Spanish coach made his official debut as head of the bench on Saturday against the Houston Rockets, which ended with the triumph of the (now) Tampa team. The next duels of the Raptors will be at dawn from Tuesday to Wednesday (01:30) against the Detroit Pistons and on Thursday to Friday (01:00) against the Boston Celtics.

The Italian took the reins after communicating that Nick Nurse, head coach, and five other members of the staff entered the NBA's anti-coronavirus protocol. After the game, Scariolo received the ball from Kyle Lowry and a mini-party was held in the locker room.

The Windows, saved him

"Appointing Sergio was not difficult for us," said Bobby Webster, general manager of the Raptors to EFE. “We have had it here for years. The experience he has, not only in the NBA but as an international head coach, whether in Europe or in the national team (of Spain), has made it not difficult. Probably the most difficult decision was to determine who can be with him, what is the plan, the replacement rates, all that. ”

"It's the other people who make me feel that this is special because you're so focused on what you're doing, trying not to screw it up, that you don't have too much time to think about your emotions," said the one from Brescia at the wheel of post-win press against the Texans.

Scariolo was saved from anti-COVID protocols by other anti-COVID protocols. In your case, those of international travelers. Last week the one from Brescia was with Spain contesting the qualifying windows for the Eurobasket 2022 in Poland, so on his return he had to spend a few days in quarantine and had no contact with his teammates.
