Lakers to be tested, self-quarantine

Players for the Los Angeles Lakers were reportedly told to self-quarantine for 2 weeks after they get tested on Wednesday for the coronavirus.

The Lakers are among the four teams who played the Nets in March.

Nets aren’t the only NBA team dealing with coronavirus

The NBA has already experiencing confirmed cases of the coronavirus. Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert was the first player in the NBA to be diagnosed with the coronavirus. His diagnosis led to the NBA postponing the season indefinitely. A few days after Gobert was diagnosed, it was revealed his teammate — Donovan Mitchell — also tested positive for coronavirus.

Both Gobert and Mitchell appear to be doing well. Since the diagnosis, Gobert urged others to take the threat seriously. Mitchell says he is asymptomatic, but is quarantining to keep others safe.

The Detroit Pistons also had a player test positive for coronavirus.
