Two Suns players test positive for COVID-19

Two Phoenix Suns players have tested positive for coronavirus, sources have informed The Arizona Republic. The positive tests led to Suns temporarily shutting down voluntary workouts at Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum, sources say. Mikal Bridges, Elie Okobo, Frank Kaminsky III, Dario Saric, Jevon Carter, Aron Baynes, Jalen Lecque and Cheick Diallo have participated in them based on a video the team posted earlier this month in their “Don’t Sleep on Basketball” series. The players were having workouts at the arena Tuesday morning. There has been a notable increase in COVID-19 cases in Arizona.

When Anthony Davis subbed in for the New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday night at the 9:49 mark of the second quarter of their game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, it put a remarkable six former Kentucky Wildcats on the floor at the same time. The occasion was noted by their former coach, John Calipari in a post on Twitter soon after it happened.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Okafor is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Monday, which makes it highly unlikely that he’ll be able to play against the Atlanta Hawks Monday night. It’s a brutal blow for Okafor, who was working to earn a roster spot on a non-guaranteed deal after a few rough years in Philadelphia and Brooklyn. He showed some impressive flashes during camp and he was moving much better on the defensive end after reshaping his body over the summer. If he can’t play Monday, expect to see extended minutes from third-year forward Cheick Diallo and rookie center Brandon McCoy, who was just added to the camp roster on Saturday.
