Wednesday's Game at Celtics Postponed 

Post#1 » by Howard Mass » Tue Jan 12, 2021 11:59 pm

Tomorrow's game at Boston has been postponed due to Covid.

This could give The Magic some time to practice and further adjust the offense after losing Markelle Fultz for the season.

Mr. Anthony needs to spend this time watching 4+ hours a day of game film and learning Orlando's set plays.
He must get better.

It might be a good thing for the Magic. There have been very few consecutive days off for the Magic (or any team) so far.

Last Friday is when the outbreak was first reported within the Boston organization. The team announced that Thompson, Robert Williams and Grant Williams would all be required to self-isolate for a minimum of seven days due to the NBA's COVID-19 protocols. Robert Williams reportedly tested positive for the virus and has been asymptomatic, while Grant Williams and Thompson are being told to quarantine for contact tracing, per The Boston Globe's Adam Himmelsbach. Tatum's quarantine was reported Saturday afternoon, and he'll be sidelined for 10-14 days. Ahead of Boston's game on Sunday against the Miami Heat, the team also ruled out Ojeleye, Brown and Green. Boston was expected to play in its game incredibly shorthanded against the Heat without those four players, but that game was postponed because Miami couldn't field eight players to take the court.


Probably won't play that either.

What a mess of a season... might as well cancel the whole thing. Does anyone truly enjoy any sports product right now? I guess it's better than nothing but teams aren't playing an equal number of games, not playing with their full rosters, or coaches, etc. It just doesn't feel like a quality product right now.
