Celtics, Warriors Add Players to Health & Safety Protocols Ahead of Primetime Match-Up

Jordan Poole COVID-19 Protocols

The Boston Celtics and Golden State Warriors added players to COVID-19 Health & Safety Protocols ahead of their primetime match-up Friday (12/17) at 7:30 EST.

The Celtics added forwards/centers Grant Williams and Al Horford.


Forward Jabari Parker was added earlier this week.

The Warriors added guard Jordan Poole.

Both teams reportedly cancelled Friday morning shootaround and media availability.

As of now, it seems the game is still going to be played – but things could change quickly if further tests come back positive.

The NBA has been besieged by COVID-19 cases in recent weeks.

Perhaps the best course of action would be to postpone games until after the Holidays.

But as with most things, the best course of action is not often the easiest.

Still, all eyes are on Commissioner Adam Silver and the League Office heading into Christmas Day games.
