Two Lakers players test positive for coronavirus; more could be tested

first_img“We were excited to be back in the gym,” he said. “We were just seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Now we know that we’re gonna be stuck here for two weeks. In my mind, I thought we still could possibly work out and get in the gym. But after finding out that the gym is shut down, we can’t be in the gym at all. Individually or as a group, or just on our own, made it even tougher.”Green confirmed an earlier SCNG report that players had received access to tests but were not required to use them right away. When most of the team finally did get tested on Wednesday via long nose and throat swabs, he acknowledged it was an unpopular procedure.“A lot of guys did not like it,” he said. “I wouldn’t say it hurt, but it was very uncomfortable, I’ll tell you that.”Related Articles Many Americans have been unable to access COVID-19 testing, which has become a point of contention around the NBA. On Wednesday, Commissioner Adam Silver said on ESPN that players could be considered “super spreaders” of the virus because of their high rate of travel and contact with large groups of people. NBPA executive director Michele Roberts told ESPN that the government was largely accountable for the lack of publicly available testing.The Lakers said in a statement that they tested players based on recommendations of public health officials and team physicians. While other teams like the Nets and 76ers have publicly acknowledged that they have hired private labs to run their COVID-19 tests to avoid strain on the CDC testing, the Lakers didn’t clarify the source of their tests in their statement.While the Lakers have not announced the identity of the players with positive tests, some have come forward publicly around the league to express the seriousness of coronavirus. Celtics guard Marcus Smart released a video on social media platforms that he had tested positive for COVID-19.“I can’t stress enough practicing social distancing and just keeping away from a large group of people,” he said. “And really just washing your hands and help protect yourself and help protect others by protecting yourself.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersThe positive test results likely change few practical steps for the Lakers, who have been advised to remain as isolated as possible at home for at least the past week and have been in touch with medical staffers throughout the suspension of the NBA’s season which officially began March 11. The Lakers started a more restrictive 14-day self-quarantine period earlier in the week after news broke of four positive tests from the Nets, their last opponent on March 10.The Lakers had been previously allowed to work out individually at the team’s El Segundo facility, but the NBA has asked teams to close practice facilities to limit further spreading of the virus.On an appearance on “The Full 48 with Howard Beck” podcast, Lakers guard Danny Green gave one of the only extensive interviews on what life has been like for the team under quarantine, although the session was recorded before the results of the COVID-19 tests were known.Green said on the podcast that the team was feeling fine, but that “coaches might have had fever or flu. I think most of us have gotten over it by this point. I don’t think anybody else is sick at this point.”Some players were preparing to leave Los Angeles after receiving clearance from the league when they were directed to quarantine on Tuesday. Green said the decision to shut down facilities was frustrating to the players, many of whom believed they might soon be able to return to work.

At least four teams reported positive COVID-19 test results for members of their organization, including two players on the Lakers.The team confirmed positive COVID-19 tests for two unnamed players after the majority of the roster took part in drive-thru testing at the Lakers’ practice facility on Wednesday morning. The team said neither player has developed symptoms, that they are in quarantine and under the care of the team’s physician.While players were told in the days immediately following the suspension of the season that they had access to tests, testing was not mandatory. The Athletic reported that the team might test the remaining players who were not tested on Wednesday, and ESPN reported that the team plans to test a small group of coaches and staffers who had close contact with players.The Lakers’ news came on a day that amounted to the dam breaking as more test results have streamed in: The Denver Nuggets, Philadelphia 76ers and Boston Celtics acknowledged that they had also received positive test results within their organizations. While initial cases struck as a novelty – Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert was the first U.S.-based athlete among the major professional leagues to test positive, upending the NBA season – the league now has at least seven organizations with reported positive COVID-19 test results. The Brooklyn Nets and Detroit Pistons have also reported cases in the last week. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
