The NBA recently began ramping up the testing for coronavirus as players reported to their market. The Indiana Pacers were no exception and Malcolm Brogdon was the first to test positive on the team.
Brogdon expressed that he’s ‘doing well’ and he plans to still play alongside his Pacers teammates for the resumption of the NBA season despite the positive testing result.
“I recently tested positive for the Covid virus and am currently in quarantine. I’m doing well, feeling well and progressing well. I plan to join my teammates in Orlando for the resumption of the NBA season and playoffs.”
The positive results for coronavirus testing does not come as a surprise. The NBA’s goal is to accomplish wide-spread testing early in the process before the game-action takes place in Orlando.
During 48 performances, Brogdon averaged 16.3 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 7.1 assists. He played a pivotal role in keeping the Pacers afloat while Victor Oladipo recovered from a torn quad-tendon injury.
With the possibility of Oladipo not playing in the resumption of the NBA season, Malcolm Brogdon will undoubtedly be relied upon to step up again if that indeed occurs.
