Boston Globe's Gary Washburn Talks Celtics, NBA Coronavirus Response

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Now that the NBA has suspended its season and two players on the Utah Jazz have tested positive for coronavirus,

The Celtics are self-quarantining through the weekend after playing the Jazz last Friday.

"They were in their hotel last night in Milwaukee," Washburn said. "Like the rest of us, a lot of them got their news via social media. They were preparing for a game tonight against the Milwaukee Bucks."

What do the players think of the suspended season?

"I think a lot of players went to social media and understand that this is a situation we've never seen before," he said. "An international pandemic is canceling games, and I think the players understand, we can't go out there and play, no one wants to be infected with this ... I think there's a level of understanding that, hey, for now, let's do this, and hopefully things will get better over the next week or two and we can resume games sometime maybe in April."
