The 2019-20 Boston Celtics season was the 74th season of the franchise in the National Basketball Association (NBA). This was the seventh season under head coach Brad Stevens. After losing Kyrie Irving and Al Horford to free agency, the Celtics signed former Charlotte Hornets All-Star Kemba Walker and former New York Knicks and Portland Trail Blazers center Enes Kanter.

The season was suspended until further notice by league officials following the games of March 11[1] after it was reported that Utah Jazz player Rudy Gobert had tested positive for COVID-19.[2] On March 19, Marcus Smart announced that he tested positive for COVID-19.[3]

On June 4, the Celtics were one of 22 teams invited to the NBA Bubble.
