NBA commissioner Adam Silver will miss Game 5 of the finals on Monday due to the league’s health and safety protocols, the NBA announced Monday.
Health and safety protocols previously affected the ESPN broadcast team for the series between the Golden State Warriors and Boston Celtics, with Mike Breen missing the first two games and Jeff Van Gundy missing Game 1 after testing positive for COVID-19.
The Boston Celtics and Golden State Warriors enter Game 5 on Monday with the series tied at 2-2. Silver has so far attended games in San Francisco and Boston and held his annual Finals news conference prior to Game 1 in San Francisco.
The Finals have so far carried on amid a national surge in COVID-19 cases without the coronavirus impacting players on the court. But Silver’s placement in protocols isn’t the first time COVID-19 has affected the NBA postseason.
Warriors head coach Steve Kerr missed three games in Golden State’s second-round series against the Memphis Grizzlies in protocols before returning to the bench for the Western Conference finals. Meanwhile, ESPN announcers Mike Breen and Jeff Van Gundy both missed Finals games because of COVID-19. They have since returned to the network’s Finals broadcasts alongside commentator Mark Jackson.
