“The organization is currently notifying anyone who has had known contact with the players, including recent opponents, and is working closely with state and local health authorities on reporting. All players and members of the Nets travel party are being asked to remain isolated, closely monitor their health and maintain constant communication with team medical staff.

Durant has not played a single game in this season due to his Torn Achilles and as per his agent, he would not participate in the season even if the season resumes and his team excels into the playoffs. Last week Brooklyn Nets were scheduled to play against the Golden State Warriors but Utah Jazz’s Rudy Gobert was tested positive of the virus that prompted the officials to suspend the whole season.
