Finney-Smith (COVID-19 protocols) has been ruled out of Monday's game against Toronto.

Finney-Smith is still working through the NBA's protocols and will be sidelined for a fourth straight game. His next chance to play arrives Monday against the Raptors.
Finney-Smith is expected to quarantine for at least seven days after he entered the NBA's health and safety protocol Saturday, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports. "The expectation is that a lot of those things aren't going to resolve quickly," Carlisle said, regarding Finney-Smith's situation. "All of those timeframes you mentioned have validity," after Townsend asked Carlisle if Finney-Smith would remain out for seven, 10 or 14 days.
