Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times first reported the news.

The Lakers played the Nets on March 10, the last game either team played before the NBA enacted an indefinite suspension of the season Wednesday night. The Nets announced four players tested positive for the virus, including star Kevin Durant, per Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium.

Utah Jazz players Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell and Detroit Pistons forward Christian Wood have also tested positive. The identities of the three other players who contracted COVID-19 are yet to be announced.

President Donald Trump said Monday that the White House recommends no gatherings of more than 10 people.
