Hall of Fame broadcaster Mike Breen will miss Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals after testing positive for COVID-19, an ESPN official told The Athletic on Sunday.
Mark Jones, who has been calling the series on the radio, will call the game in Breen’s place.
Breen, who last week won the outstanding personality/play-by-play Sports Emmy, has been working alongside Jeff Van Gundy and Mark Jackson throughout the series, with Lisa Salters on sideline reporting duty. Breen is also scheduled to call the NBA Finals this year for the 17th straight time.
Game 7 is set to tip off at 8:30 p.m. ET in Miami. For updates and information on Game 7, check out The Athletic’s live blog here.
