Coronavirus scare forces Boston Celtics to self-quarantine in Milwaukee

masslive.com – The Boston Celtics traveled from Indiana to Wisconsin for a game against the Milwaukee Bucks tomorrow night.
Instead, they’ve been forced to self-quarantine in Milwaukee as they try to figure out how they’re impacted by Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert’s positive coronavirus test.

ESPN reports the Celtics are one of five teams the Jazz have played in the past 10 days told to self quarantine.
The other are the Cleveland Cavaliers, New York Knicks, Detroit Pistons and Toronto Raptors.
