Malcolm Brogdon Tests Positive For COVID-19

Indiana Pacers guard Malcolm Brogdon has tested positive for COVID-19, J. Michael of the Indianapolis Star reports. The guard becomes the latest on a growing list of players who’ve been faced with the coronavirus.

It’s unclear if Brogdon has suffered any symptoms as a result of the virus.

The news of Brogdon’s positive diagnosis comes a day after the revelation that Denver Nuggets All-Star Nikola Jokic, too, tested positive for COVID-19.

Brogdon and Jokic aren’t the only players facing the coronavirus, of course, as four players on one unknown Western Conference playoff team and two players on the Phoenix Suns also tested positive. Those numbers are sure to grow as the results of wide-spread, league-wide testing are revealed.

Any significant Brogdon absence could have a major impact on the Pacers as the 27-year-old has enjoyed a career season in 2019-20. Through 48 games with Indiana, Brogdon has averaged 16.3 points and 7.1 assists.
