Clippers’ Landry Shamet Tests Positive for COVID-19

Landry Shamet has tested positive for the coronavirus and isn’t expected to be with the Clippers when they travel to Orlando on Wednesday, tweets Shams Charania of The Athletic.

The Clippers were forced to close their practice facility this week after a member of their traveling party registered a positive test for COVID-19. There was hope that the facility might be reopened before the team departs for Florida, but Shamet’s test may affect that decision.

Twenty-five NBA players and 10 staffers had recorded positive tests through Thursday, according to a release from the league.

The second-year guard has become a valuable rotation player since being acquired from the Sixers midway through last season. He is averaging 9.7 points per game and has started 27 of the 47 games he has played this year.

      Yes. They say he has to have 2 negative tests during self-isolation then a 3rd negative test once he gets to Orlando before he is allowed to enter the bubble.

        Thanks for response

        I think Bubble is safer than "not stay at home "
