A Bay Area police chief reportedly called on President Donald Trump’s administration to prioritize coronavirus testing for first responders over NBA players.
The entire traveling contingent of the Jazz organization was then tested, resulting in the positive test of Donovan Mitchell. The 58 tests reportedly exceeded half of the daily allotment for the entire state of Oklahoma. Since then, a dozen more NBA players from six other teams have tested positive, including Kevin Durant, Marcus Smart and Christian Wood.
NBA teams came under criticism for procuring tests for players and personnel staff — many of whom have not been symptomatic of COVID-19 — during a nationwide shortage that has resulted in health officials asking otherwise healthy individuals to avoid testing in hopes of servicing those in most need. A number of NBA tests were reportedly facilitated by state officials.
