Reports of players across the NBA dealing with COVID-19 have quickly surfaced. It seems every hour, another player enters the health and safety protocols. COVID-19 has impacted many teams this season, and it's finally made its way to the Golden State Warriors.

Early Friday morning, the team announced that Jordan Poole would not be available for the game against the Boston Celtics. Moses Moody replaced Poole in the starting lineup, but there is still concern moving forward.

“We've had a nice couple of months to start the year that felt relatively normal. Fans are back in the stands, and great energy and a lot of quality play, ratings. Everything felt really good, but this was always in the background,” Steve Kerr told ClutchPoints.

The NBA relaxed their policies heading into this 2021-22 season. They allowed more media availability and wasn't requiring daily testing if players were vaccinated. Since this new outbreak has occurred, things will likely tighten up around the league.

“Now obviously the whole world is dealing with this latest surge, and it affects every, every business, some worse than others, and it definitely affects ours, and now it's up to all the players and coaches and management in the league to do our best to deal with it and get through it,” Kerr added.

The Warriors are finishing their road trip this weekend, and the Celtics are the first opponent of a back-to-back. They hope to end this road trip with two more victories before heading home for the first time since Stephen Curry has broken Ray Allen's record.
