Brooklyn Nets coach Steve Nash has cleared COVID-19 health and safety protocols and will coach Sunday afternoon against the Boston Celtics, the team announced Saturday.
Nash was placed in league health and safety protocols Monday. Assistant coach Jacque Vaughn assumed head-coaching duties in Nash’s absence. Brooklyn dropped each of its three contests with Vaughn at the helm, despite Kevin Durant’s Thursday night return against the Miami Heat.
The Nets (32-32) currently sit at 8th in the Eastern Conference heading into Sunday’s matchup in Boston.
