Boston Celtis center Enes Kanter believes that players will require an adjustment period of two to three weeks of practices and training in order to get back to shape when, and if, the NBA season resumes.

“I think we’ll need two to three weeks just to get back on the court because people are in their apartments and not moving at all,” Kanter said per the Boston Globe. We have to make sure everyone is doing their stuff and in great shape, so they can go out and compete. If you jump straight to playoffs, playoffs are like a war, where you have to give it everything you have. Make sure everyone is 100 percent healthy, in-game shape, and then we can compete.”

Kanter last played a game on March 11, in a 114-win over the Indiana Pacers. The Celtics mathematically clinched a playoff spot with the victory.

In the meantime, the NBA was shutting down after Rudy Gobert’s coronavirus test came back positive.

“We are competitors man, so we want to go out there and finish the season,” Kanter said. “Especially, like, it’s crazy — we actually have a really good chance to go out there and win a championship.”
