BROOKLYN, New York (KGO) -- Kevin Durant is among four Brooklyn Nets players to test positive for novel coronavirus, his PR rep confirms with ABC7 News.

"Everyone be careful, take care of yourself and quarantine. We're going to get through this," Durant said.

The Nets did not name the players diagnosed with COVID-19, but said that only one of them was actually showing symptoms.
