Former Warriors star Kevin Durant has tested positive for coronavirus, he told The Athletic on Tuesday.
Durant, who was a two-time NBA Finals MVP while leading the Warriors to a pair of titles, told the Athletic that he was feeling fine.
“Everyone be careful, take care of yourself and quarantine. We’re going to get through this,” said Durant.
According to New York Times, at least seven NBA players have tested positive for the virus so far. On Tuesday March 17, the Nets announced that four of their players had tested positive, but did not name the athletes.
The Nets said all four athletes remain isolated, closely monitor their health and maintain constant communication with team medical staff. The team also said only one of them had shown symptoms, who woke up Tuesday experiencing soreness.
Mike Bass, a spokesman for the N.B.A., suggested that players might be a priority for testing because of their heavy travel and contact with large groups across cities.
