The NBA and NBPA have formally announced that of the 483 players tested for the coronavirus within the last week, one has returned a confirmed positive test.

This is the third consecutive week with just one positive COVID-19 test among players, as the NBA has managed to avoid any major outbreaks in the second half thus far.

As a result, no games have been postponed for reasons related to coronavirus in over a month — the most recent postponement occurred on March 2.

Since the league and the players’ union don’t release any specifics about COVID-19 testing, we don’t know the identity of the player who tested positive.
