    NBA Reports 48 Positive COVID-19 Tests
    December 2nd 2020 at 5:05pm CST by Arthur Hill
    The first round of the NBA’s coronavirus testing produced 48 positive results out of 546 tests, tweets Shams Charania of The Athletic. The initial testing phase was November 24-30.

    The league expected to encounter some COVID-19 cases as players return to their team’s city and re-enter the NBA’s cohesive health and safety protocol, Charania adds (Twitter link). Positive results were also reported at the same stage leading up to the restart in Orlando.

    All players who tested positive will have to be isolated, according to a tweet from the National Basketball Players Association. They can’t be cleared until they meet the rules established by the league and the NBPA under guidance from the CDC.

    We know two of those positive tests came from the Warriors who announced Tuesday that they will delay the start of training camp activities for a day because of two cases of COVID-19.

    The league distributed a 134-page “Health and Safety Protocol Guide” last week to help teams mitigate the dangers from the virus and prepare for the disruptions that positive tests might cause.

    so...a 9% positivity rate when practices haven't even started yet and teams aren't traveling

    this might be a ragged season

    Why not release the names?

    Is it safe to say it's none of the Blazers that are currently in market? (Only leaves Melo and Nurk I think)

    No fans in any games and shorter schedule! $41 million in lost gate revenue. That doesn’t include concessions and jerseys, sweatshirts, etc etc.

    Bro, because I love hoops! Watching him and Beal run up and down the court launching shots will be entertaining as hell. Don't care who wins. Just like back in the 90s, I loved watching those shitty Warriors teams. They were just a blast to watch. Look forward to watching the Hornets and Ball as well. Like a summer league game.

    I’m happy to watch Westbrick scrubbing it up on a bunk ass team. He probably wanted to go east because he has nightmares of Lillard.

    im a hoops junky too. Nerd out any chance I’m given.

    It's not a regulation court. That's probably an NBA 3

    Harden wanted Wall. Rockets are doing the trade in a bid to keep Harden in Houston.

    99% sure that's a regulation court. You can see the NBA 3pt line...

    I don't know. The space between the 3pt line and halfcourt looks pretty close to me.

    I hope I am. Watching the video the court seems small. Maybe his shot is so crazy its discombobulating

    Yeah, I was looking back at that. You only see the three point line for a second. It looked closer than an NBA 3pt line at first.

    I'm glad to be wrong though. That is a hell of a shot. Did he even leave his feet?

    Will be curious to see if re-infection starts to happen.

    There was already a similarly high number of players that had it before the bubble. Guessing players got it between the bubble and now that was not reported. That makes for a good portion of players that have been exposed.
