The NBA season is set to kick off next month in Florida but it looks like some players will have a but of a delay! The league recently tested 302 of their players and they announced Friday that 16 of the players actually tested positive, that’s a 5.3% rate of positive tests league wide. So what’s next? The league announced that any player who tested positive will remain in self-isolation until he satisfies public health protocols for discontinuing isolation and has been cleared by a physician.
The player names were not disclosed; some players, such as Malcolm Brogdon of Indiana and Sacramento teammates Jabari Parker and Alex Len, have publicly acknowledged they recently tested positive.
