Four Brooklyn Nets players tested positive for the novel coronavirus, the NBA team announced in a statement Tuesday.

The state of play: One of the four players is exhibiting symptoms, and the others are asymptomatic. All, including Kevin Durant, are currently self-isolating, along with the rest of the team and travel party.

  • "The organization is currently notifying anyone who had known contact with the players, including recent opponents," the statement read.
  • The names of the four players were not publicly shared in the team release, however Durant spoke out about his condition with The Athletic's Shams Charania.
