Durant is now the fourth NBA player to test positive for the virus. Prior to him was Detroit Pistons player Christian Wood, as well as Utah Jazz players Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell.

The NBA suspended the season after Gobert tested positive for the coronavirus. Gobert’s positive test result was reported right before the Jazz was set to play the Oklahoma City Thunder at Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City. (Gobert was not in the arena before the game; according to reports, he was feeling fine and ready to play.)
