Detroit Pistons center Christian Wood appears to be doing well in his recovery from the coronavirus.

On March 14, we learned that Wood had tested positive for COVID-19. He was the only Pistons player known to have contracted the virus.

The Pistons had a round of testing for the virus, according to Rod Beard of the the Detroit News. There was only one positive test among the group, which included staff and members of the traveling party, in addition to the players. Wood’s test was negative. He would need a second negative test 24 hours apart to officially be cleared.

Wood is “feeling great and fully recovered,” according to his agent, Adam Pensack.

The Pistons’ tests for the virus were done through a private company. They were all originally tested because the team faced the Utah Jazz on March 7.

The Jazz have two players, Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell, who tested positive for the virus, leading other teams that had played the Jazz to get tested.
