Without a secure bubble environment, this NBA season is proving to be difficult to navigate.

One day after the Philadelphia 76ers roster was ravaged down to just eight available players due to coronavirus protocols (leading to Tyrese Maxey’s career-high 39 points), Sunday’s matchup between the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat has reportedly been postponed due to multiple cases of COVID-19. Miami does not have the required amount of players available to play while Boston was already down to the eight minimum active players before the decision to postpone the game was handed down.

Former Kentucky players Bam Adebayo and Tyler Herro are not currently listed on the NBA’s injury report, which was last updated at 1:30 p.m. EST, although that does not mean they are apart of the group of players ruled out. Adebayo tested positive for COVID-19 over the summer.

Despite multiple franchises losing players to contract tracing and positive tests, the NBA has no plans to pause the season, according to ESPN‘s Adrian Wojnarowski. This is the second game to have been postponed during the first three weeks of the season.
