Covid-19: NBA Reports 48 Players Tested Positive
The National Basketball Association (NBA) announced on Wednesday 2, December 2020 that 48 players have tested positive for Covid19.
Recall that there was a zero positive tests reported during last season’s quarantine bubble in Florida. However this is a steep rise in number as the preseason is just a week away. The NBA reported that the positive tests are from results of 546 tests carried out between Tuesday 24, November and Monday 30, November 2020.
The NBA says it will be testing all of its players daily throughout the season. The Golden State Warriors, however, have already delayed the beginning of their individual workouts by a day this week because of players testing positive. The NBA’s new Covid19 protocols, requires that any player who tests positive has to refrain from workouts for at least 10 days and possibly more if he is showing symptoms.
