The NBA and NBPA released a statement saying 16 players have tested positive for coronavirus out of 302 tests.

That’s a 5.3 percent positive test rate.

These results are specific to the tests conducted on June 23.

“Any player who tested positive will remain in self-isolation until he satisfies public health protocols for discontinuing isolation and has been cleared by a physician,” the statement reads.

Players including Malcolm Brogdon, Jabari Parker, Buddy Hield, Alex Len and Derrick Jones Jr. all tested positive this week.

Nikola Jokic tested positive in Serbia and is not included in the June 23 test results.

Other specific players are unknown, but there were reportedly four players on a Western Conference Playoff team and two Phoenix Suns players to test positive.

Individual workouts are scheduled to begin on July 1 and teams will travel to Orlando from July 7-9.
