NBA Rumors: Celtics Under Quarantine Amid Jazz’s Coronavirus Concerns


The Boston Celtics reportedly have been told to self-quarantine in Milwaukee.

The Celtics are one of five NBA teams that have been told to take the precautions after having played against the Utah Jazz twice in the last two weeks, per ABC’s Ryan Field.

It follows the news that the Jazz have the first NBA player to have tested positive for coronavirus — reportedly in star Rudy Gobert.

The Celtics, however, will not play against the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday, as the NBA season has been suspended indefinitely due to coronavirus concerns.

The Celtics reportedly will have no further comment Wednesday night but are “in touch with league officials and certainly going through proper protocol,” per The Boston Globe’s Adam Himmelsbach.
