After being among the NBA players who tested positive for the coronavirus, Marcus Smart says he has been cleared from it.

Smart sent a tweet on Sunday night sharing an update about his status.

Smart joins Detroit’s Christian Wood and Utah’s Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell as players who have been cleared since having the virus. This is great news, as it’s showing NBA teams may have managed to slow the spread of the virus by canceling games at the first sign of a player who tested positive.

The entire Oklahoma City Thunder team tested negative a week and a half ago, and only a few other teams — such as the Nets and Lakers — have shared that some of their players tested positive.

What does this mean? Why not get the players who tested negative and the ones who have already recovered and start setting them up in the Las Vegas bubble!
