The NBA Finals players will continue to be healthier than the NBA Finals broadcasters for Game 2.
Jeff Van Gundy will return from his one-game, COVID-19 absence, but Mike Breen will miss his third straight game for ESPN/ABC when the Celtics and Warriors face off Sunday in San Francisco, The Post’s Andrew Marchand reported.
Breen tested positive for the coronavirus and missed the Celtics’ Game 7 win over the Heat last week. Marchand has reported the belief is Breen feels fine, but he evidently has not been able to test his way toward the microphone.
Van Gundy called Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals but was noticeably hoarse. He then missed Game 1 of the Finals because of COVID-19.
For Game 2, Mark Jones will again replace Breen as play-by-player, and Mark Jackson will flank Van Gundy as an analyst.
Game 3 will be in Boston on Wednesday, when ESPN/ABC will hope Breen can rejoin the team.
