During media availability, the head coach of the Portland Trail Blazers, Terry Stotts, revealed that one of the three positive coronavirus tests announced by the team belonged to a player. Stotts did not say who the player was.

The team voluntarily closed the practice facility for deep cleaning, but Stotts expects they will be able to practice starting Tuesday, marking the beginning of their official training camp ahead of preseason games. Zach Collins, Jusuf Nurkic, and the positive player will presumably sit out camp.

The team held individual workouts in lieu of starting training camp.

For the coaching staff, it is all hands on deck to get the team ready for the season.

The Trail Blazers are schedule to play against the Sacramento Kings December 11th.
