The Celtics-Magic Game Postponed

Since the Celtics do not have eight healthy players, the NBA has postponed the game between the Boston Celtics and the Orlando Magic. While the game is now scheduled for Friday, the Magic have not yet arrived in Boston. Despite the constant testing and safety precautions, the NBA has had to postpone five games due to COVID-19 after starting the season less than a month ago.

Unfortunately for the Celtics, this is their third consecutive game that has been postponed. Before this game, the Celtics were scheduled to play both the Miami Heat and the Chicago Bulls. Infected or exposed players will be forced to quarantine, so the future of their upcoming games may be uncertain. Although this is a hard time for the Boston Celtics, they have still been able to play 10 games so far and remain at the top of the NBA standings in the Eastern Conference.

Robert Williams and Jayson Tatum are among some of the players that are off the court due to COVID-19. With contact tracing, the team has been able to identify several other players that have been exposed, such as Grant Williams. The team is hoping that their players have a healthy recovery and that they can resume their season soon.
