Real Madrid veteran Rudy Fernandez has tested positive for COVID-19, the club announced Thursday. Fernandez has entered the EuroLeague protocols and will remain in isolation in accordance with the guidelines.

Fernandez, 36, is on to his 11th season with the Spanish club and so far in the 2021-22 campaign, he has been posting averages of 6 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.8 assists across 19 minutes in 17 contests.
