Rick Carlisle out tonight due to positive COVID test, hoping for false-positive

Dallas Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle is out for tonight’s game against the New York Knicks due to a positive COVID test which occurred this morning.

Carlisle, who told the media during his usual pregame Zoom interview that he was fully vaccinated in January, hopes the test was a false-positive. Yet due to caution, Carlisle will remain quarantined in his hotel room until further results are given.

Carlisle told the media that he feels fine and even worked out this morning.

Assistant coach Jamahl Mosley will fill in as the interim head coach for Carlisle tonight against the Knicks, who as Carlisle has stated in the past when he interviewed for head coaching vacancies, believes Mosley is ready for a head coaching gig of his own.

“This is a great opportunity for Mosley. He’s obviously, in my opinion, ready for this kind of opportunity. I think this is something he’ll thrive in,” Carlisle said.
