Four members of the Brooklyn Nets have tested for the coronavirus. Three of those players have not been identified at this time.
However, the one player, who has been identified is Kevin Durant. He has not played this season after suffering a torn Achilles in Game 5 of the 2019 NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
Durant and his teammates were tested following their return from San Francisco, California. The Nets were supposed to play the Golden State Warriors at the Chase Center on Thursday, March 12th.
On the night before they were scheduled to play the Warriors, the NBA was suspended until further notice when Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert came down with the coronavirus. This caused the NBA and basically, the sports world, to go on hold.
According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Nets paid a private company to perform the tests on their athletes. One of the players, who has it, woke up with aches today. However, the respected NBA insider said that the other three were showing no symptoms.
“Of the four, one player is exhibiting symptoms while three are asymptomatic,” the Nets said in their statement. “All four players are presently isolated and under the care of team physicians. The organization is currently notifying anyone, who has had known contact with the players, including recent opponents, and is working closely with state and local health authorities on reporting.”
With this latest news, there are presently seven players tied to the NBA, who have the coronavirus that are players. Besides Gobert and these four players, Detroit Pistons player Christian Wood and Jazz star Donovan Mitchell also have it.
