According to reports, Durant along with four Brooklyn Nets players have tested positive for Coronavirus.
He spoke to The Athletic after the news broke. Durant said he was feeling fine and doesn’t have any symptoms.
He said, “Everyone be careful, take care of yourself and quarantine. We’re going to get through this.” The other three players have yet to be identified. Only one of the players is reported to be showing symptoms.
ESPN reports the only player showing symptoms “experienced aches when he woke up Tuesday.” The tests were done after the team came back from San Francisco last week. The team played the Warriors on March 12. The players were able to receive the highly coveted tests after the Nets paid a private company out of pocket.
On March 10, Durant was photographed hanging out with Drake in Los Angeles. The two were spotted leaving out a backdoor together with security.
The other NBA players who have tested positive include Utah Jazz stars Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell and the Pistons’ Christian Wood.
The Nets released a statement, “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. 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.”
The first major celebrities to test positive for Coronavirus was Tom Hanks & Rita Wilson. Earlier this week, actor Idris Elba released a video announcing he had tested positive and was staying in isolation.
As The Blast first reported, Drake is also dealing with legal issues at the moment.
