Earlier this week, sources confirmed at least four Kings players, including Jabari Parker, Buddy Hield, and Alex Len, tested positive for the coronavirus. The league began testing players on Tuesday. According to the NBA, 16 players in the league have tested positive.
Those who test positive are required to self-isolate for at least 14 days and have two negative tests before they can enter the training facility or travel to Orlando.
The NBA season went on hiatus on March 11, soon after Utah Jazz player Rudy Gobert tested positive for coronavirus. All major sports leagues remained dormant through May and have only recently revealed plans to reopen.
