Portland Trail Blazers v Brooklyn Nets

Four Brooklyn Nets players have tested positive for the coronavirus according to Adrian Wojnarowski, bringing the NBA's total to six. Utah Jazz players Rudy Govert and Donovan Mitchell were the first two to test positive for the coronavirus. The Nets released a statement on the matter:

"All four players are presently isolated and under the care of team physicians."
"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."

Ways to combat catching COVID-19 include self-quarantining from others, washing hands, avoiding hand to hand or physical contact with others. Coronavirus spreads between people in close contact with one another, typically within six feet, or through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Spread is still possible before people show symptoms, although that does not stand as the typical cause, according to the CDC.
