Lebron James and his Los Angeles Lakers' teammates to undergo coronavirus testing today

NBA star, LeBron James and his Los Angeles Lakers’ teammates will undergo testing for the coronavirus today, March 18.

 

Sources at the basketball club confirmed to ESPN’s Dave McMenamin, following the Brooklyn Nets’ announcement that four players including Kevin Durant have tested positive for the virus.

 

The Lakers played the Brooklyn Nets’ in their last game before the NBA suspended play last Wednesday following a positive test by Rudy Gobert of Utah Jazz.

 

The Lakers will self-quarantine for 14 days. Most of the Lakers are still in town, so testing should not be a logistical issue, sources told ESPN.

 

“Given the exposure risks from our game against the Nets on March 10th, we are following the next steps of our COVID-19 procedures and protocol that are established in consultation with various health officials, the NBA and our UCLA Health doctors,” the Lakers said. “The health and well-being of our players, staff, fans, and society in general, is of paramount importance to us, and will continue to be our focus.“

 

This comes a day after the Nets announced that four players including Kevin Durant have tested positive for the coronavirus. The Nets said they had reached out to anyone known to have had contact with the players.

 

In addition, Utah’s Donovan Mitchell and the Detroit Pistons’ Christian Wood are the other two basketballers that have tested positive for the virus.
