Lakers players will reportedly be tested for coronavirus, then self-quarantine

Sports-related coronavirus news continues, now with the Lakers reportedly set to be tested, and entering 14-day quarantine. Here’s the Los Angeles Times reporting:

The Lakers plan to get their players tested for the coronavirus Wednesday and have asked their players to self-quarantine for 14 days, according to people familiar with the situation but not authorized to speak publicly.

The information was relayed to players during a conference call Tuesday and follows an announcement by the Brooklyn Nets that four players tested positive for the coronavirus, three without symptoms. The Athletic reported that one of those players was injured Nets star Kevin Durant, who was on the trip to Los Angeles last week.

Unfortunately, stories about coronavirus will be dominating the news for the near future.
