COVID-19 concerns cause Pacers, Raptors to cancel practices
INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana Pacers and Toronto Raptors canceled their Thursday practices, citing an abundance of caution with COVID-19 health and safety protocols.
Both teams made the announcements on Twitter and made clear that it was a precautionary move.
Indiana has won twice this week — beating Washington on Monday and routing the New York Knicks on Wednesday. Pacers guard Justin Holiday has not played since entering the health and safety protocols on Nov. 30.
Team officials were not expected to provide any additional details Thursday. Indiana is scheduled to host Dallas on Friday.
Toronto has not had any positive COVID-19 tests since the season began and team officials have said all players are fully vaccinated.
