Nine more National Basketball Association players test positive for coronavirus, bringing total to 25

Shams Inside this week’s ‘campus orientation meetings’ for NBA players

In total, there have been 25 players who have tested positive out of 351 for COVID-19 since testing began on June 23rd.

The Denver Nuggets shut down their training facility over the weekend after two members of the team's travel party tested positive for COVID-19 and the New Orleans Pelicans said this week that three of their players also tested positive. The league announced last week after a previous round of testing that 16 players had tested positive.

The NBA plans to resume the season on July 30 with 22 teams conducting games without spectators in a bubble environment at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.

"One thing we are learning about this virus is much [is] unpredictable, and we and our players together with their union look at the data on a daily basis", Silver said.


Commissioner Adam Silver was asked by Time Magazine on Monday about whether the cost to finish the season was worth it. I'd also say, we're testing daily.

The NBA is working closely with medical experts and plans to modify guidance and recommendations based on all available information, Silver said. "They may have to adapt their language a little bit knowing what they say will likely be picked up by microphones and in all seriousness, we may need to put a little bit of a delay". "It doesn't come into play in terms of dollars and cents because, frankly, it's not all that economical for us to play on this campus".

"Certainly if we had a lot of cases, we are going to stop". As I said earlier, you can not run from this virus.

"In some ways, this is maybe a model for how other industries can ultimately open".
