Kevin Durant’s Latest Health Status 

According to Charania, Durant is “feeling fine” and has not had any symptoms linked to coronavirus. Durant also sent a message for everyone to heed.

“Everyone be careful. Take care of yourself and quarantine. We’re going to get through this,” Durant said.

Durant is not the one player that has not had symptoms. Utah Jazz’s Donovan Mitchell spoke with Good Morning America Monday stating that he too has not shown any symptoms of coronavirus.

Durant has not played since the NBA Finals last season due to rupturing his Achilles. Prior to this news, given that the NBA season might make a return around May or June, there was a possibility that Durant could make a return. But now, it seems highly unlikely we will see Durant suit up any time soon.

Kevin Durant and the other three Nets players tested positive for coronavirus now makes the total of players tested positive to seven. Rudy Gobert was among the first, followed by Donovan Mitchell and Detroit Pistons forward Christian Wood within the past week. The other three Nets players tested positive has not been released as of late. Stay tuned for more updates and further information on the three Nets players and much more.
