Lakers, coronavirus
Los Angeles Lakers to celebrate Juneteenth

The Los Angeles Lakers have completed their 14-day self-quarantine and all the players on the team are asymptomatic of COVID-19, the team announced Tuesday, per Tania Ganguli of the Los Angeles Times.

The Lakers went into self-quarantine after four members of the Brooklyn Nets tested positive for COVID-19. Los Angeles had played against Brooklyn on March 10, which was the last game either team played before the NBA season was suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak.

After everyone was tested two Lakers players also tested positive for the coronavirus.

Since the NBA suspended its season, the United States has been hit hard by a flood of cases. The latest information from Johns Hopkins University shows there have been over 177,000 confirmed cases in the states, with 3,440 people tragically losing their lives.

There is no known date at this time for the league to come back, though there is optimism that the 2019-20 season can be salvaged, at least in part.
