The Coronavirus does not discriminate. It doesn’t matter if you’re a 7’1″ French center who stupidly touches every microphone and recording device. It doesn’t matter if you’re his teammate and former runner-up for the Rookie of the Year. It apparently doesn’t even care if you’ve played a single minute in the NBA this season.

And per Shams Charania, Kevin Durant was among the four players:

As for a timeline, the Nets played against the Lakers in LA on March 10, and were scheduled for a March 12 tilt in the Bay Area against the Golden State Warriors. That game, along with the entire NBA season, was postponed at which point Woj reports the team was tested for the virus:

The message Durant relayed to Shams is an astute one: Be careful, take care of yourself and quarantine.

    I’m glad that the ERs are struggling to test the people coming in with all the symptoms while these friggin guys are getting tested even though they’re the epitome of health and are asymptomatic.
