Team USA coach Gregg Popovich on Thursday confirmed that three players on the select team have tested positive for COVID-19 and are in the protocol.

Popovich did not identify the players but ESPN reported they are Immanuel Quickley of the New York Knicks and Charlotte’s Miles Bridges and P.J. Washington.

The three players were not at Thursday’s practice with Team USA members, held at UNLV.

Also, Detroit Pistons center Isaiah Stewart of the select team rolled his ankle and had to leave a scrimmage Thursday. Anthony Edwards was lost to a sprained ankle Wednesday.
