The number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the NBA continues to grow.
The Philadelphia 76ers announced on Thursday that three individuals in the organization have tested positive for the coronavirus.
The team said the tests were secured and processed privately after they received the recommendation that certain individuals — including players, coaches and staff — be tested.
The Sixers said all others that were tested came back negative.
The news comes after the Denver Nuggets announced earlier Thursday that they had one member of their organization test positive for the disease as well.
In their final game on March 11, before the suspension of the NBA season, the Sixers played the Detroit Pistons, who had one of their players also test positive for the coronavirus.
