Two Los Angeles Lakers Players Have Tested Positive for Coronavirus

Two players from the basketball team Los Angeles Lakers have tested positive for coronavirus.

The team was tested after it was confirmed that four players from the Brooklyn Nets, including star Kevin Durant, tested positive earlier this week. The Lakers played the Nets in a game on March 10.

“We learned today that two Lakers players have tested positive. Both players are currently asymptomatic, in quarantine and under the care of the team’s physician,” the Lakers organization said in a statement.

“All players and members of the Lakers staff are being asked to continue to observe self-quarantine and shelter at home guidelines, closely monitor their health, consult with their personal physicians and maintain constant communication with the team,” the statement added.
