Following the release of the second half of the 2020-21 regular season schedule, the NBA updated the results from the latest round of COVID-19 testing. According to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, two positive tests emerged from last week’s series of testing that covered 455 players.

The two positive tests is a slight uptick from the previous round of results that the NBA released earlier this month.
Wednesday’s update was delivered as the NBA prepares to host an abbreviated All-Star Game showcase in Atlanta in early March. As of now, Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard is set to participate in the game itself and the three-point competition.
