Clint Capela was also caught up by the pandemic: the Geneva center has entered the Covid protocol. The best rebounder of last season, double vaccinated in May otherwise, is expected to miss the Atlanta Hawks game on Christmas Day against the New York Knicks.
Contacted by Keystone-ATS, the Genevan confirmed the information initially tweeted by ESPN journalist Adrian Wojnarowski. « But my symptoms are mild, nothing serious », he said, however.
Atlanta will also most certainly have to do without its point guard Trae Young and Danilo Gallinari, who have also come into contact with the virus.
While the NHL has decided to take a few days’ hiatus, the NBA has yet to make that decision. The Omicron variant is a game-changer and very quickly becomes dominant across the Atlantic.
