ESPN analyst Jeff Van Gundy has tested positive for COVID-19 and will miss Game 1 of the NBA Finals, an ESPN official told The Athletic on Thursday. The news comes after Hall of Fame broadcaster Mike Breen missed Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals due to COVID-19. Van Gundy was also on the broadcast team for the Heat-Celtics series. Van Gundy was scheduled to call this week’s NBA Finals for the 16th time in his career, alongside Breen, Mark Jackson and sideline reporter Lisa Salters.
Breen has called the first six games of the series between the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat. The series wraps Sunday night in Miami on ESPN, with Mark Jones stepping in for Breen alongside commentators Jeff Van Gundy and Mark Jackson. Breen said he feels well, per the spokesman, and expects to call Game 1 of the Finals, which begin Thursday.
