AS NBA CAMS OPEN, WARRIORS AND WIZARD HAVE PLAYERS WITH COVID-19
Two players for the Golden State Warriors and another for the Washington Wizards have tested positive for Covid-19, the NBA clubs announced Tuesday as individual 2020-21 pre-season workouts began.
Warriors general manager Bob Myers said his club delayed the start of individual player workouts until Wednesday, with group sessions to start next week.
Wizards coach Scott Brooks said an unidentified player on his roster has tested positive and will be unable to participate in training camp this week.
The NBA’s health-and-safety protocol says any player who tests positive, even if not displaying symptoms of the virus, must wait 10 days or test negative twice at least 24 hours apart and then be monitored in individual workouts for two more days before he can return to the club.
Solo workouts are set through Saturday with five days of group workouts starting Sunday before NBA pre-season games begin December 11 and the regular season starts December 22.
