The NBA announced on Wednesday that zero players out of 495 have tested positive for Covid-19 since Dec. 24. This runs before Christmas Day and is great news after positive tests popped up for the Houston Rockets early in the season. The NBA did a great job in the bubble in Orlando with the restart of the 2019-20 season.

The NBA was off to a rough start when 48 players tested positive on Dec. 2, the first round of testings. This was when most players were returning to practice facilities after being off for so long. That number only increases by 8 players on Dec. 10. After that, the League started to sort everything out. Now, as 2020 comes to an end, there are zero players positive, which is a great sign for basketball through the first week and change.
