Four players on the Nets have tested positive for the coronavirus, the team said in a statement on Tuesday.
“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,” the Nets said in a statement. “All players and members of the Nets travel party are being asked to remain isolated, closely monitor their health and maintain constant communication with team medical staff. The health of our players and staff is of the highest priority to the organization and the team is doing everything within its power to ensure that those affected receive the best care possible.”
Last week, the Utah Jazz’s Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert were revealed to have contracted the illness, as well as Christian Wood of the Detroit Pistons.
This is a developing story.
