Forward Jabari Parker and center Alex Len, both members of the Sacramento Kings, said Wednesday they tested positive for the coronavirus.
“Several days ago, I tested positive for COVID-19 and immediately isolated myself in Chicago, which is where I am staying,” Parker said in a statement released by the team. “I am making progress in my recovery and I feel good. I look forward to joining my teammates in Orlando when we return to the court to resume the NBA season.”
In a story post on Instagram, Len said he was evaluated Tuesday in Sacramento.
“I want to thank the Sacramento Kings for their great care and the NBA for putting into practice the protocols that allow me to catch this so early,” the Len statement said. “Immediately I have gone into isolation and I look forward to being cleared and reunited with my teammates for our playoff push.”
The Kings (28-36) are one of 22 NBA teams slated to resume games on July 30 in Orlando.
Parker, 25, appeared in a game with the Kings. He was traded to Sacramento in February by the Atlanta Hawks, after averaging 15 points in 32 games with the Hawks this season.
The 27-year-old Len is averaging 8.3 points and 6.0 rebounds in 49 games. He was also acquired by the Atlanta Kings in February and has appeared in nine games for Sacramento.
