Sacramento Kings forward Jabari Parker says he has tested positive for coronavirus and will join the team in the Orlando restart.

“Several days ago, I tested positive for COVID-19 and immediately self-isolated in Chicago where I remain,” Parker said in a statement. “I am progressing in my recovery and feeling well. I look forward to joining my teammates in Orlando as we return to the court for the resumption of the NBA season.”

Parker played one game for the Kings after being dealt by the Atlanta Hawks at the trade deadline.

In 33 games played this season (32 with the Hawks, one with the Kings), Parker averaged 14.7 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game.

The Kings are his fourth team in the last two seasons.
