Zero New COVID-19 Cases Among Players For Third Straight Week

The NBA and NBPA announced today in a press release that out of the 264 players tested for COVID-19 since June 2, none returned a new positive confirmed test.

This marks the third straight week that the league’s testing protocols have found no positive tests. Only two players have tested positive since May 5, a welcome development as the NBA attempts to conduct its post-season with as few COVID-related interruptions as possible.

The league has been extremely careful in its attempts to limit the spread of COVID from players and coaches, and with the draft process ramping up and MGM Resort Summer League establishing its schedule, their success so far in the playoffs is an encouraging sign for this off-season and the 2021/2022 season to come.
