The 2021 NBA All-Star Game is in the books and the latest COVID-19 tests from event show that no positive results have emerged. On Monday, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski delivered an update regarding the latest round of testing from the All-Star Game in Atlanta.

Players, coaches and officials COVID test results all returned negative from All-Star Game on Sunday, league spokesman tells ESPN. No on-court infections in Atlanta. Everyone was tested three times in Atlanta, including post-game last night.

Wojnarowski went on to clarify that yesterday’s testing occurred prior to the game—not in the postgame segment of the event.

On Sunday, Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons of the 76ers were withheld from the event due to the NBA’s contact tracing protocol. According to the early reports, both Embiid and Simmons came in contact with a barber that has since tested positive for coronavirus.
