The Magic’s game against the Celtics scheduled for Wednesday reportedly has been postponed.

For the Celtics, who are unable to field the minimum eight players required by the league due to health and safety protocols, it is their third consecutive game to be postponed. Their scheduled matchup against the Heat last Saturday was postponed after Miami had an inconclusive test and issues with contact tracing. The Celtics then were short players for tonight’s scheduled game against the Bulls, leading to its postponement.
The Magic are also scheduled to play in Boston on Friday, with the status of that game still very much up in the air.
The Magic and Celtics were scheduled to play Wednesday and Friday in Boston, but Magic won't be traveling today, sources tell ESPN. It is immediately unclear the status of the Friday game, but sources say Wednesday's game has been postponed.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) January 12, 2021
Such is life in the league today. Health and safety must come first.
On the positive side for the Magic, it gives some of their injured players a few extra days to recover.
