A third NBA player has tested positive for the coronavirus, the Detroit Pistons confirmed Saturday night.
The Pistons did not name the player but ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported it was forward Christian Wood, attributing it to a league source.
The Pistons issued a statement, reading: “We are working closely with team medical staff, state and local government and public health officials and the NBA on reporting. The individual will remain in isolation and under the care of team medical staff."
All three played in the same game on Saturday, March 7 in Detroit. Wood, from UNLV, scored 30 points in the game. Mitchell scored 25 and Gobert 10.
The Hawks last played the Pistons on Jan. 18 in Atlanta.
The NBA has ceased playing due to the coronavirus. The shutdown is planned for a minimum of 30 days, meaning the earliest basketball might resume is April 10.
