Sixers guard Seth Curry say out Thursday night's game in Brooklyn with what was described as a sore ankle.

He accompanied his team in street clothes on the Sixers bench, only to leave after the first quarter when he was told he has tested positive for COVID-19 according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Per Woj, the team stayed the night at the team hotel and the rest of the players and staff will be tested and are having contract tracing done Friday morning.

Also according to ESPN's Ramona Shelburne

All Star center Joel Embiid, who has a three-month-old-son, told ESPN he plans to self quarantine from his family until he is certain he didn’t contract the virus. Embiid sat next to Curry during the game.

There are two scenarios for a return to the floor for Curry, either going at least 10 days since the first positive test or symptom onset, or having two negative PCR tests at least 24 hours apart.

The 76ers next scheduled game is at home Saturday against the Nuggets.
