Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant has tested positive for coronavirus.
Earlier on Tuesday (17.03.20), the Nets announced that four of their players had tested positive for COVID-19 but did not reveal names.
According to reports, Durant said that he is feeling fine, saying, “Everyone be careful, take care of yourself and quarantine. We’re going to get through this.”
“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.
According to the team, all four Nets players are in quarantine with only one experiencing symptoms.
The former Golden State Warriors (GSW) player has been sidelined since June 10, 2019 after he tore his Achilles tendon during Game 5 of the 2019 NBA Finals.
The news comes one week after the NBA announced it is suspending the season after Utah Jazz player Rudy Gobert tested positive for the Covid-19 virus as reported by The Sauce.
