The Boston Celtics suspended head coach Ime Udoka for a year for the 2022-23 season for violating team policies, a stiff penalty that could affect title hopes for the National Basketball Association franchise.

The suspension starts immediately. A decision on Udoka’s future beyond the season will be made at a later date, the Celtics said in a statement. The suspension was due to an improper relationship with a member of the organization, AP reported, citing two unidentified people.
