NEW YORK (UNITED STATES) – Four new cases of coronavirus in the NBA. After Rudy Gobert, Donovan Mitchell and Christian Wood, the Brooklyn Nets have announced that four players have tested positive for the coronavirus test.
One of them is Kevin Durant , as confirmed by the same player on The Athletic: “I'm fine, everyone must be careful, take care of themselves and remain in quarantine. We will go out together. "
Durant is reportedly asymptomatic. The total number of coronavirus-positive NBA players rises to 7.
The Nets had reported that three players are asymptomatic, while only one currently has symptoms compatible with the disease; however, all are in isolation in their homes where they are being treated by the staff, in contact with the local health facilities.
The last team to face them before the suspension of the championship were the Los Angeles Lakers, to whom the news was immediately communicated.
Even in the United States, where the coronavirus arrived late compared to China and Italy, they wonder about the future of the basketball championship.
Will there be time to complete it completely or not? According to some US sources, the NBA could cancel the rest of the Regular Season to only play the playoffs that assign the title.
But at the moment they are all hypotheses. First we will have to see when the United States will finally be able to defeat the coronavirus. (source ANSA).
