Seth Curry tests positive for COVID-19
During the Sixers 122-109 loss to the Brooklyn Nets, Philadelphia learned that Seth Curry tested positive for COVID-19. Curry found out during the 1st quarter that he tested positive and 76ers staff quickly removed him and placed Curry in self-isolation.
Seth was sitting in the front row masked but was in close contact with several unmasked Sixers on the bench before learning the news. It is currently unknown if any other 76ers player has tested positive. Joel Embiid plans to self-quarantine from his family until he returns a negative test result.
The 76ers were set to play the Denver Nuggets Saturday afternoon but it currently is in doubt. Philadelphia will be without Curry and possibly several others depending on how test results come back. Brooklyn have yet to have any positive tests and neither did the Washington Wizards following their game yesterday.
This looks to be the first possible major spreader of the NBA season. Depending on how many others test positive it could have been spread to at least two other NBA teams. Curry is the first Sixer since training camp to test positive for COVID-19. Philadelphia will be staying in New York and conduct contact tracing in the morning to determine the severity of this outbreak.
