The NBA is recording a series of players infected with COVID-19, recently adding two Golden State Warriors players appearing in the patient list.
Four days ago the NBA announced that they had sampled 546 NBA players, 48 of them (equivalent to 8.8%) for COVID-19 positive results. The number of cases is not expected to stop and that quickly comes true.
A few hours ago the NBA recorded two more COVID-19 infections, both of which are members of the Golden State Warriors, Draymond Green, and James Wiseman. This is bad news for The Bay because Green and Wiseman are quality factors.
If the name Green is unquestionable, rookie James Wiseman is the second name chosen on the Draft Day by Golden State Warriors, so the 19-year-old player receives great expectations.
James Wiseman was the 2nd pick on the last Draft Day
Coach Steve Kerr’s army should have joined since last week, but two COVID-19 positive players forced them to cancel the plan. Answer to the media, the 55-year-old captain did not reveal the identities of these two players.
But San Francisco Chronicle’s Connor Letourneau recently revealed the identities of these two players. Very quickly, reputable sources also validated this information.
Green and Wiseman will need time to cure, quarantine before joining forces with teammates. If you’re lucky, the duo will take at least 2 weeks to return.
The Blazers training ground was blocked
