The Brooklyn Nets reportedly had four players test positive for the coronavirus, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

It’s not publicly known which players tested positive for COVID-19, but the Nets have informed recent opponents and those around the team about the positive tests. The Nets have placed their players and traveling party into isolation, per Wojnarowski. In a statement, the team announced that only one player is symptomatic at this time.

DeAndre Jordan recently shared that the entire team might get tested for COVID-19.

The NBA suspended the ongoing season after Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert tested positive for the coronavirus. Since that time, teammate Donovan Mitchell and Detroit Pistons forward Christian Wood have tested positive for it.

The Nets last played against the Jazz on Jan. 14. Brooklyn’s last five games came against the Boston Celtics, Memphis Grizzlies, San Antonio Spurs, Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers.

While the Jazz and Nets both played the Celtics in March, Utah faced them three days after Brooklyn. However, the Jazz also played the Celtics on Feb. 26, but it isn’t known if Gobert showed any symptoms or might have had the virus at that time.

While it’s not yet known when the NBA might return, the latest information can be found here.
