More than 10 players have already tested positive for the COVID-19 virus, including Rudy Gobert, Mitchell, Christian Wood, Kevin Durant, Marcus Smart, and many others.
Coronavirus hasn’t been known to discriminate for age, sex, race, or religion, affecting many around the world and forcing people to self-isolate to keep this pandemic from further spreading.
The Timberwolves star advised fans to stay quarantined and to take this pandemic seriously, much like he and his family are doing at the time while they pray for her steadfast recovery. Obviously, we are wishing KAT and his family well during this tough time.
