Of the 492 NBA players tested for COVID-19 since April 28, four players registered new confirmed positive tests, the league and the players’ union announced in a press release.

entered the NBA’s health and safety protocols this week and were ruled out for 10 to 14 days, which is typically the projected timeline associated with a positive test. They may be two of the four affected players, though that’s not confirmed.

The NBA has been able to keep the virus relatively in check during the past couple months, having not had a game postponed due to COVID-19 since prior to the All-Star break in early March.

Still, it’s worth noting that this week’s four positive tests represent the highest weekly total among players since March 3. The league will hope to see that number trending downward next week, with the postseason around the corner.
