Mid-Game COVID Scare

Seth Curry Tests Positive for COVID-19 During First Quarter vs. Nets

In the absence of Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant, the Brooklyn Nets were able to overcome the 7-1 Philadelphia 76ers, but coming out of the win, the main headline had nothing to do with the game itself.

Early in the night, the 76ers learned of a positive COVID-19 test as guard Seth Curry was forced to leave the bench during the first quarter. Both teams finished the game, but the Sixers were forced to quarantine immediately upon its conclusion in New York due to contact tracing. Weirdly enough, the Nets were granted permission to travel to Memphis following the 122-109 win.

Curry was originally unable to play due to an ankle injury.

An additional item of note, the Sixers are coming off a back-to-back after playing the Washington Wizards on Wednesday night, therefore it will be incredibly interesting to see what the NBA will opt to do if more tests return positive. At one point during the opening quarter, Joel Embiid was seen sitting next to Curry.

The NBA will continue to monitor the situation as we await more news.
