The NBA’s latest major coronavirus issues appear to be in the rearview mirror.

The Spurs – who had at least four players test positive – returned to play Wednesday. San Antonio listed five players out due to health-and-safety protocols: Keldon Johnson, Derrick White, Devin Vassell and Quinndary Weatherspoon.

Did a fifth Spur test positive?

It seems possible. Though transparency is limited, we at least have a better idea of the league-wide situation.

NBA release:

Of the 455 players tested for COVID-19 since Feb 17, 2 new players have returned confirmed positive tests.

NBA players have had at least 153 cases – and almost certainly many more – of coronavirus.
