The Miami Heat and the Boston Celtics will not play Sunday night because of an inconclusive COVID-19 test.

One Heat player had a test that came back as inconclusive and Miami does not have required eight players to proceed with the game tonight due to contact tracing.

Miami just started in on a four-game road trip, defeating the Washington Wizards 128-124 on Saturday to kick off the trip.
