Celtics plan to play Friday, another Suns game called by NBA
Boston Celtics head coach Brad Stevens gestures during the first half of an NBA basketball game against the Miami Heat, Wednesday, Jan. 6, 2021, in Miami. Meanwhile, the Indiana at Phoenix game scheduled for Saturday has been called off — the ninth such postponement since the week began. The Suns will not have enough players eligible to play, largely because of contact tracing issues, the NBA said. The Suns and Wizards were both scheduled to play Friday; those games were postponed because of contact-tracing issues. We appreciate the opportunity to play the game we love and when it's taken away for a week or four months that's hard.
