The Brooklyn Nets announced that four players of the team tested positive for coronavirus. Only one of the players is showing symptoms of the virus so far.

Previously, three NBA players were found positive for coronavirus: Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert, Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell and Detroit Pistons forward Christian Wood. Both three have been asymptomatic.

Gobert was the first NBA player to test positive for coronavirus. His case resulted in the league getting suspended immediately for a minimum period of 30 days.

“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,” a statement from the Nets read. “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.”
