Agent: Pistons big Christian Wood ‘fully recovered’ from coronavirus
Pistons big Christian Wood tested positive for coronavirus 11 days ago.
Now comes good news.Dana Gauruder for the Detroit Free Press:
Wood, the only Detroit Pistons player known to have contracted the virus, is “feeling great and fully recovered,” according to his agent, Adam Pensack.
A source familiar with the situation said Wood has to pass a few medical tests and is expected to be cleared Thursday.
Rod Beard of The Detroit News:
The source of coronavirus tests for celebrities, including NBA players, has become an issue. The real shame is the shortage of tests. But the Pistons are trying to get in front of complaints about favorable treatment.
Considering return-to-play options, the NBA must obviously evaluate how quickly players recover from coronavirus. Wood’s progress is great news.
But coronavirus is still spreading – both within and outside the NBA. Celtics guard Marcus Smart, two Lakers players and three members of the 76ers organization tested positive with results announced in the last week. Unless everyone involved in the league is quarantining, it’s impossible to rule out more new cases.
