BOSTON -- Marcus Smart, the only Boston Celtics player to test positive for the coronavirus, continues to be in good spirits and good health, according to head coach Brad Stevens.
“He’s been feeling good,” Stevens said via conference call on Friday. “I’ve been checking in with him and everybody else has. I’ve seen him on conference calls a few times. He seems to be doing well.”
Smart was among the first NBA players to go public after testing positive for COVID-19.
“I’m proud of how he took the initiative to tell people that he had it and felt good,” Stevens said. “It’s a unique, unsettling time for everyone.”
