NBA star Kevin Durant is the latest player to test positive for the coronavirus.

The Brooklyn Nets announced in a press release Tuesday that four team members had tested positive for the coronavirus and that one of them had been symptomatic. Although the team didn't name the players, Durant told The Athletic he's one of them, saying: "Everyone be careful, take care of yourself and quarantine. We're going to get through this."

The Nets said all four players are currently in isolation and that the team is "notifying anyone who has had known contact with the players, including recent opponents." It's also asked players and members of the team's travel party to isolate themselves and "closely monitor their health."

Last week, the NBA suspended the 2019–20 NBA season after Utah Jazz player Rudy Gobert tested positive for the virus. His teammate Donovan Mitchell and Christian Wood of the Detroit Pistons have also tested positive.
