Boston Celtics

Celtics game Wednesday at San Antonio in question because of COVID issues with Spurs

Just moments before Celtics coach Brad Stevens addressed the media prior to the matchup with the Bulls, he learned the San Antonio Spurs game against the Pelicans at New Orleans had been postponed.

The NBA said there were contact tracing issues with both teams, each unable to field the eight player minimum, so the Celtics will wait until there’s official word on Wednesday’s game before traveling to San Antonio.

Chicago coach Billy Donovan brought up the opportunity of the Bulls and Celtics making up their previously postponed Jan. 12 game on Wednesday.

The Celtics are scheduled to return to Boston early Thursday morning before a Saturday night matchup with the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Celtics held Kemba Walker out for the second game of the team’s back-to-back set but he’s expected to play Wednesday against the Spurs.

Pritchard, who sprained his MCL Friday against Philadelphia, sat on the sideline during the Celtics’ win over the Cavaliers without a knee brace.
