BOSTON– The Boston Celtics could be without stars Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and a number of other players due to the fact that of coronavirus safety procedures when they deal with Miami on Sunday.

The Celtics are noting Tatum as skeptical and Brown as doubtful for the rematch of the Eastern Conference finals. Tristan Thompson, Grant Williams and Robert Williams have currently been eliminated for that factor, and the status of Semi Ojeleye and Javonte Green is unidentified.

With Kemba Walker and Romeo Langford not available because of injuries, the Celtics could have the minimum eight players needed to begin a video game.

Besieged by its own coronavirus problems, Philadelphia dressed an injured player Saturday so it might field a group to play versus Denver.

Boston played on Friday against Washington, and Tatum was seen on video talking with the Wizards’ Bradley Beal, who missed a game Saturday versus Miami since of the health and security protocols.
