I was tested 5 days ago and the results came back tonight, which were positive. Ive been self quarantined since the test, thank goodness. COVID-19 must be taken w the highest of seriousness. I know it’s a #1 priority for our nations health experts, & we must get more testing ASAP pic.twitter.com/xkijb9wlKV— marcus smart (@smart_MS3) March 19, 2020
Smart also tweeted he is feeling fine and hasn’t shown symptoms. He’s been quarantining for close to a week after it was announced on March 11 that Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert had contracted the virus. The NBA season has been suspended since that night.
Smart and the Celtics faced the Jazz on March 6, just five days before Gobert tested positive. The virus has been spreading around the league, as it was reported today that three staff members with the Denver Nuggets and Philadelphia 76ers and two players from the Los Angeles Lakers have tested positive. Several teams are self quarantining after playing the Jazz just days before Gobert’s positive COVID-19 test, and members of some of those teams have contracted the virus.
Here’s to hoping Smart’s immune system plays first-team all-defense against Coronavirus.
