COVID has wreaked havoc on the 76ers roster, with guard Seth Curry testing positive and several others quarantined. Contact tracing forced a postponement of Philly’s game on Sunday against the Oklahoma City Thunder, due to the Sixers lacking the necessary eight players to take the court.
The Celtics dealt with COVID issues of their own earlier this month, as Jayson Tatum tested positive and forced their facilities to be closed. Three C’s games were postponed as a result.
Tuesday’s injury report in Philadelphia will give a clearer picture as to the Celtics and Sixers’ chances of tipping off Wednesday night.
