The Sacramento Kings could be getting help before the Orlando games get underway. According to Marc J Spears of The Undefeated, Harrison Barnes could depart for Orlando today after testing positive for the coronavirus a week ago. The Kings are fighting for a playoff spot in the eight seeding games.

Barnes is just one of the handful of players that have tested positive for the coronavirus. The NBA shut down in March and has been under hiatus ever since. For the Sacramento Kings, they will need all the help they can get as they are 11th in the standings and 3.5 games back for the eighth seed.

The Kings got good news a couple of weeks ago when Marvin Bagley III said he was ready to go and now Harrison Barnes could depart for Orlando today. Sacramento is an up and coming team and they will benefit from these playoff-caliber games.
