Sixteen of 302 NBA players have tested positive for COVID-19 as the league prepares to restart its season in Orlando, Florida next month. The results have been reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Soon afterwards it was echoed by the NBA and the National Basketball Players Association.

The numbers equate to approximately 5.3% of players testing positive.

Teams are slated to travel to Orlando between July 7th and 9th, with the season set to resume for an abbreviated regular season and playoffs schedule starting July 30th.
