Celtics Coach Udoka Potentially Facing Significant Suspension, per Report

Celtics head coach Ime Udoka could reportedly face potential disciplinary action, including a serious suspension, for violating team rules, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Currently, the franchise is contemplating a suspension for Udoka and a length for the punishment could come as soon as Thursday. However, Udoka’s job is not believed to be in jeopardy, according to Wojnarowski.

Tea Boston Globe’s Adam Himmelsbach confirmed Wojnarowski’s initial report.

If Udoka faces a suspension, Celtics assistant Joe Mazzulla would be expected to emerge as a favorite for the team’s interim role, per Wojnarowski. Will Hardy, Udoka’s former assistant, left Boston to become the head coach of the Jazz in June.
