Former Sixer Christian Wood Tests Positive for Coronavirus
Another NBA player has been infected with the Coronavirus.
This one hits much closer to home, as former Sixer Christian Wood, has tested positive for the coronavirus, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.
Per Charania's tweet, Wood has no symptoms and is doing well.
Wood scored a career-high 32 points against the 76ers on Wednesday night, the final day of games before the NBA suspended play for at least 30 days. His previous game was on March 7 against the Utah Jazz, which is notable due to the fact that both Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell have also tested positive for the coronavirus.
Wood, who played for the Sixers during the 2015-26 season, defended Joel Embiid for most of the night during his 38 minutes of play.
As of Thursday, Sixers players were in self-quarantine and were hoping to get tests for players and staff members, according to Derek Bodner of The Athletic.
On Friday's edition of The Sports Bash, we talked to Utah Jazz beat writer Sarah Todd, who has covered the Jazz during this road trip and has had plenty of interaction with both Gobert and Mitchell, and was tested for the virus - she was negative.
However, she is on a 14-day quarantine in here Salt Lake City area home.
