11 new NBA players have tested positive for COVID-19 out of 502 tested since Jan. 13, the NBA and NBPA announced.

“Anyone who has returned a confirmed positive test, or has been identified in close contact to an infected person, is isolated or quarantined until they are cleared under the rules established by the NBA and Players Association in accordance with CDC guidance,” according to the statement by the NBA and NBPA.

This number is down from last week when the league recorded 16 positive tests out of 497 players.

There have been 16 total postponements so far this season, with the game between the Portland Trail Blazers and Memphis Grizzlies being the latest one.
