LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (News Nation) — The NBA still hasn’t had a confirmed coronavirus case among players inside the season-restart bubble at Walt Disney World.
The league released updated numbers showing that none of the 342 players who were tested daily since the league last released results on Aug. 5 has had a confirmed positive. There has not been a player positive yet since teams began entering the bubble more than a month ago.
In the event of a positive test, NBA rules require a player to isolate until all protocols are met for a return to play. Those protocols were developed in agreement with the NBA and the league’s players association.
The league’s play-in series for the last Western Conference playoff spot starts Saturday.
