EL SEGUNDO -- Following four Brooklyn Nets players testing positive for COVID-19, because Los Angeles Lakers’ players were exposed to them during our game against the Nets on March 10, our team physicians and public health officials recommended coronavirus testing for the players. 

We learned Thursday that two Lakers players have tested positive. Both players are currently asymptomatic, in quarantine and under the care of the team’s physician. 

All players and members of the Lakers staff are being asked to continue to observe self-quarantine and shelter-at-home guidelines, closely monitor their health, consult with their personal physicians and maintain constant communication with the team.

The health and well-being of our players, our organization, our fans, and all those potentially impacted by this situation is paramount. As always, we appreciate the support of our fans, family and friends, and wish everyone affected by this virus a speedy recovery.
