NBA commissioner Adam Silver will miss Thursday night’s Game 6 of the NBA Finals in Boston as he remains in the league’s health and safety protocol.

The NBA hasn’t disclosed whether Silver tested positive for COVID-19.

Silver’s absence would be notable if the Golden State Warriors beat the Boston Celtics on Thursday since he won’t be there to award the championship trophy. The Warriors hold a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series.

According to reports, deputy commissioner Mark Tatum would present the Larry O’Brien Trophy should Golden State win Thursday.

If Boston wins to tie the series, a decisive Game 7 will be held Sunday night in San Francisco.
