The Boston Celtics and Miami Heat‘s injury reports look largely familiar heading into their decisive Game 7 showdown in Florida this Sunday evening, but at least one familiar face will be missing from the broadcast once the game gets underway.

It isn’t Boston big man Robert Williams III (knee) or Celtics point guard Marcus Smart (foot sprain), nor Heat wing Tyler Herro (groin). Those players are all questionable along with a slew of Miami players dealing with notable dings and nicks and reserve forward Sam Hauser (shoulder) of the Celtics the only definite scratch. It is instead announcer Mike Breen according to the Boston Globe’s Chad Finn, who has reportedly tested positive for COVID-19 and will sit the contest out.

Mark Jones will replace him on the call per Finn, with an ESPN spokesperson relating that Breen feels fine and expects to be calling Game 1 of the 2022 NBA Finals on Thursday, June 3.
