“Found out last night and confirmed again today that I’ve tested positive for Covid while being back in market,” Jordan wrote on Twitter. “As a result of this, I will not be in Orlando for the resumption of the season.”

 The league continues to see positive cases rise across the spectrum of their teams, with even Jordan’s teammate Spencer Dinwiddie contracting the virus as well and also considering sitting out the events.

Other notable players such as Jabari Parker, Nikola Jokic, and various others have already had or had and overcome the virus. The question is, should the NBA care, or just go forth with business as usual?

At the time being, it appears as though the plans are set in place to go ahead as promised. Teams must submit eligible players and rosters to the NBA by Wednesday as a means of officially getting started for the July tournament.
