The Philadelphia 76ers announced Thursday that three members of their organization have tested positive for COVID-19 (via ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski):
The individuals are self-isolating, and medical professionals will monitor them per Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines.
According to the World Health Organization, COVID-19 has sickened at least 207,000 people worldwide, and at least 8,600 people have died as of Thursday.
In the United States, at least 7,087 people have confirmed cases, and at least 97 people have died.
The NBA has seen the largest number of confirmed coronavirus cases among the major U.S. sports leagues. Four Brooklyn Nets players, including forward Kevin Durant, have COVID-19. The same goes for Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert of the Utah Jazz and the Detroit Pistons' Christian Wood.
The NBA's season has been suspended since March 11 following news of Gobert's positive test. Many sports organizations soon followed with cancellations and postponements.
There is no current timetable for the NBA's return, with ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reporting on Sunday was that owners and executives believed the "best-case scenario" was a comeback starting in mid-to-late June.
