The Mavericks have encountered their first significant COVID-19 issue as the NBA attempts to play this season outside of a quarantined environment.
Before their flight Friday from Denver to Dallas, the Mavericks learned a player on the trip had tested positive for COVID-19, a source told The Dallas Morning News’ Brad Townsend on Friday. The Athletic first reported the news.
Two more players who were exposed to the virus have tested negative but are expected to face seven-day quarantines due to the NBA’s contact-tracing protocols.
