Charles Barkley Falls Ill, Awaiting His Coronavirus Test Results

Charles Barkley is currently in self-quarantine after he fell ill this week.

The 57-year-old former basketball player has been tested for Coronavirus and he’s waiting for his results to come back. In the meantime, he’s in a 48-hour quarantine.

“I spent the earlier part of the week in New York City. When I got to Atlanta, I wasn’t feeling well. I talked to a couple people at Turner and a couple doctors and they told me to self-quarantine for the next 48 hours. I started yesterday. This is my second day. I haven’t been feeling great and they didn’t want me to take any chances,” Charles said while calling into TNT’s The Crossover broadcast.

“I’m just kinda in limbo right now,” he added. “I’m really hoping it was just a bug.”

Charles Barkley Tells 'Ellen' He'll Never 'Sit Back' When It Comes To Standing Up Against Discrimination!

Charles Barkley makes his very first appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing Wednesday (February 12), and opens up about not having a problem standing up for what he believes in.

Host Ellen personally thanks the NBA Hall of Fame legend for speaking out against discrimination, most notably when he initially pulled out of the 2017 NBA All-Star game in Charlotte, North Carolina due to the state’s controversial bathroom bill, HB2.

“Well I hated the bathroom bill, so I went to my boss and said, ‘Hey boss I’m gonna sit out of the All-Star game. I don’t want to to take away from the All-Star game, but I’m gonna sit out the All-Star game,” Charles, 56, recalls. “He says, ‘You can’t sit out the All-Star game, you are our biggest star’. I said, ‘Well, I gotta make a stand against discrimination. He said, ‘Let me talk to the NBA.’”

Charles explains that thanks in part to his efforts, Adam Silver, the NBA commissioner, decided to move the game out of Charlotte and to New Orleans.

“It was a really nice gesture for the NBA,” Charles continues. “I think in a time when you’re black, you got to stand up for other people. Black people know what discrimination is like. If your in a position of power, you got to always stand up against discrimination. I’ve been blessed man, and I’m never going to sit back and let discrimination happen on my watch.”

Shaquille O’Neal, Dwyane Wade, Charles Barkley, and more are mourning Kobe Bryant.

The basketball stars got together for a tearful, hour-long NBA pre-game special tribute at the Staples Center Tuesday (January 28).

Shaq revealed that when he first learned of the tragic news, “I didn’t want to believe it.”

“I haven’t felt a pain that sharp in a while,” he said. “I’m 47 years old. Lost two grandmothers, a [father], I lost a sister, and now I lost a little brother.”

He also shared that Kobe Bryant‘s kids called him Uncle Shaq, and Shaq‘s children called him Uncle Kobe.

“We’re not gonna be able to joke at his Hall of Fame ceremony,” Shaquille continued. “I wish I could just say something to him again.”

“It definitely changes me,” Shaquille O’Neal added. “I work more than the average guy, but I just have to take time… and do a better job of reaching out and calling people. Because you never know.”
