Celtics confirm Ime Udoka’s suspension for the 2022-23 season in press release

The Boston Celtics made the widely reported suspension of head coach Ime Udoka official on Thursday evening, nearly 24 hours after ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski broke the news of the pending disciplinary action prompted by an unspecified violation of the team’s rules.

The press release circulated by the franchise was both terse and vague.

“The Boston Celtics announced today that the team has suspended Head Coach Ime Udoka for the 2022-23 season for violations of team policies. A decision about his future with the Celtics beyond this season will be made at a later date. The suspension takes effect immediately.”

It offered no further details about the nature of the violations or of the team policies involved.
