NBA and NBPA announced that 48 players out of the 546 tested positive for COVID-19 during the tests conducted between Nov. 24-30.
NBA also stated that anyone who tested positive during the initial phase of testing in their team's market would be isolated until they are cleared for leaving isolation under the rules established by the NBA and the Players Association under CDC guidance. The league also said in its health and safety protocols that it is likely that some players and staffers would test positive, particularly as the virus remains prevalent in particular team markets and surrounding communities.
