The COVID-19 virus is making its way through the NBA and showing no signs of slowing down.

In a statement sent out by the Philadelphia 76ers on Thursday, it was announced that three members of the organization have tested positive for COVID-19.

"The Philadelphia 76ers, in consultation with medical experts and the NBA, received the recommendation that certain individuals from the organization, including players, coaches, and specific basketball operations support staff, be tested for COVID-19. The tests were secured and processed privately.

Three individuals have received positive test results for COVID-19. All other tests are currently negative. We have reported this information to state and local health authorities as required.

Pursuant to CDC guidelines, the individuals are in self-isolation and will be monitored closely by medical professionals.

The health of our players, staff, fans, and community is paramount, and we continue to be guided by medical experts at this time.

We extend our gratitude and appreciation to the public health and medical communities for their tireless efforts during these challenging times, as well as to our fams and partners for their support."



It's worth noting that the last game the 76ers played before the NBA suspended its season was on March 11 against the Detroit Pistons—who announced last Saturday that forward Christian Wood tested positive for COVID-19.



The 76ers are the fifth NBA team to receive positive tests for COVID-19, joining the Utah Jazz, Detroit Pistons, Brooklyn Nets and Denver Nuggets.
