The Boston quintet has recovered those who were injured and is seen as one of the candidates for the title in an atypical season.
On July 30 the NBA and the different teams will finally know in what conditions they are in relation to their rivals and facing the postseason. One of the strong candidates is the Celtics, franchise that has its entire payroll ready to return to action.
In fact, the players who suffered ailments in the first part of the regular season took advantage of the stillness caused by the pandemic to recover and now Brad Stevens, the helmsman of the Boston team, will be able to count on the entire squad, without restrictions.
“This time served us well, especially those with injuries. We are all healthy and ready to play, ”said Enes Kanter, but not before making it clear that in the Celtics everyone is at their peak and more than ready to resume the season.
It is now four days of training for those from Boston, who this week will play their first friendly with the Oklahoma City Thunder, a pilot test that will serve for both parties. Recall that the Celtics are third in the Eastern Conference and that their presence in the playoffs is almost assured.
