Former MVP Kevin Durant has become the latest NBA star to test positive for the coronavirus.
After first mulling the idea of playing without crowds, the league suspended its season last week when Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert was confirmed to be infected with the disease.
Since then, Gobert’s teammate Donovan Mitchell and Detroit Pistons player Christian Wood have also tested positive along with four members of the Brooklyn Nets.
While the identities of the other three Nets players have not yet been disclosed, Durant, one of the league’s best players, has been confirmed to be one of those infected.
“Everyone be careful, take care of yourself and quarantine,” he told The Athletic, adding that he is feeling fine and not showing any symptoms. “We’re going to get through this.”
NBA officials and fans are now looking at the schedule to determine which other players and teams may be at risk. The Nets played the Lakers on March 10.
Durant also hung out with Drake after the game.
The Nets were then set to play the Warriors in an empty arena on March 12 but Gobert’s diagnosis caused the season to come to a halt before the game could be played.
