On March 11, NBA commissioner Adam Silver suspended the 2019-20 season after Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell tested positive for the coronavirus.

While Christian Wood later tested positive, there were major concerns after Kevin Durant and three of his Brooklyn Nets teammates did as well.

With the Los Angeles Lakers playing the Nets last before the 30-day suspension, players were tested and started their 14-day quarantine.

The coronavirus test results have returned now and two Lakers players reportedly have tested positive, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic:

As the Lakers tested 14 of their players on March 18, they may test the remaining who did not take it, according to Brad Turner of Los Angeles Times:

Shortly after these reports, the Lakers confirmed two players have tested positive and are currently asymptomatic and in self-quarantine right now.
