The Boston Celtics got back on the court Friday in Orlando, Fla., the team’s first practice together since March.
Head coach Brad Stevens said all players were able to participate after everyone tested negative for COVID-19. The practice was held in a “convention center ballroom,” according to Stevens, which he noted was “an excellent environment to practice.”
The organization tweeted out a video, showcasing some highlights from the workout, which you can watch below.

The Celtics will have a bit longer until they officially return to competitive basketball, as they’re scheduled to face the Milwaukee Bucks on July 31, their first “seeding game” of the league’s return-to-play plan.
The Celtics, along with the 22 NBA teams who made the trip to the Walt Disney World campus, will play eight seeding games before starting the postseason.
