"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.
The team was reportedly tested after returning from their game at San Francisco's Chase Center, and the results came back today, Tuesday, March 17. Durant was not on that road trip.

The former Warriors superstar has been sitting this season out with an Achilles injury he got while playing in Game 5 of the NBA Finals last season with Golden State.
