The Boston Celtics might be without their head coach to begin the 2022-23 NBA season.
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported late Wednesday night that Ime Udoka is facing possible disciplinary action — including a significant suspension — for violating organizational guidelines.

Shams Charania of The Athletic reported early Thursday morning some of the details behind the situation. 
Celtics coach Ime Udoka had an improper intimate and consensual relationship with a female member of the team staff, sources tell @TheAthletic @Stadium. It’s been deemed a violation of franchise’s code of conduct.
Wojnarowski reported Thursday that Udoka is expected to be suspended for a full season, with assistant coach Joe Mazzulla likely to take over as interim head coach.

Losing Udoka for an extended period of time would be a tremendous blow to a Boston team that thrived in his debut season as head coach. The Celtics finished the 2021-22 campaign with a 51-31 record to earn the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference, then made it to the NBA Finals where they were defeated by the Golden State Warriors in six games.
The C’s will begin training camp later this month and begin the preseason on Oct. 2. The regular season opener is scheduled for Oct. 18 vs. the Philadelphia 76ers.
