Celtics head coach Ime Udoka tested positive for COVID-19 10 days ago, a team spokesman said Monday, and is in his final day of isolation.

The Celtics said Udoka was vaccinated and that he has been asymptomatic for several days.

He is expected to take part in Monday’s team media day virtually and is also on track to attend the team’s opening practice Tuesday.

“He’s been fairly asymptomatic the last 10 days,” Celtics president of basketball operations Brad Stevens said. “Thankfully, he was vaccinated, so it hasn’t hit him like it’s obviously hit others that we read about all over the country.


“I think that as far as missing time, he’s good at connecting with people. [He’s done] that over FaceTime, over text, over many different ways.”
