Report: Drake self-isolates after hanging out with Kevin Durant before positive coronavirus test
Toronto Raptors ambassador and rapper Drake is self-isolating at his mansion in Toronto after partying with Brooklyn Nets superstar small forward Kevin Durant just days before Durant was diagnosed with the coronavirus, per Sarah Nathan of Page Six.
Drake and Durant partied together on March 11 in Los Angeles when the Nets were in Hollywood taking on the Los Angeles Lakers. Durant didn’t play since he’s recovering from his Achilles tear, but he was with the Nets in L.A. when Brooklyn faced the Purple and Gold:
The pals hung out at West Hollywood hotspot Nice Guy eight days ago, with Drake posting a photo of their night out.
Durant and three other Nets players tested positive for the coronavirus.
The good news, though, is that Durant has been asymptomatic. The Nets star had this message for fans: “Be careful, take care of yourself and quarantine. We’re going to get through this.”
The NBA suspended its season last week after Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert tested positive for the coronavirus. Jazz shooting guard Donovan Mitchell and Detroit Pistons center Christian Wood have tested positive, too.
Durant signed a four-year deal with the Nets last summer in free agency. Brooklyn should be title contenders next season once Durant and Kyrie Irving take the floor together, but right now it’s unclear just when the NBA is going to resume.
Even if this season starts back up again, Durant isn’t expected back until 2020-21.
