Kevin Durant is reportedly named among the four players on the Brooklyn Nets to test positive for COVID-19. KD spoke with Sham Charania of The Athletic soon after his diagnosis and said, "Everyone be careful, take care of yourself and quarantine," adding, "We're going to get through this." The Nets paid for private testing which was conducted on Saturday and registered results earlier today (Tues. Mar 17).
A press release from the Nets read:
"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. 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."
