The Nets haven’t played the Utah Jazz recently. And that shows why this disease is very scary.

There are now at least seven players diagnosed with the coronavirus, after Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell of the Utah Jazz, and Christian Wood of the Detroit Pistons.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, four Brooklyn Nets players tested positive for COVID-19 in a tweet on Tuesday afternoon.

The Nets released a statement below.

Brooklyn did not announce which players were diagnosed and there is no report on which players they are. The Nets have two former Wizards, Garrett Temple and Chris Chiozza on their team.

The Wizards last played the Nets on Feb. 26, which Washington won, 110-106. If the NBA season wasn’t suspended, they would have played at Barclays Center tomorrow.

We wish that all diagnosed players get well soon. And man I hate this virus.
