Toronto Raptors PF/C Serge Ibaka has tested negative for COVID-19 coronavirus after defending Jazz C Rudy Gobert on Monday night, The Athletic’s Shams Charania reported late Friday night.

The Raptors were among five teams that were asked to self-quarantine as a result of Gobert and Donovan Mitchell testing positive for the virus. It’s good news that Ibaka tested negative, of course, considering how close in contact Toronto was with Utah. We haven’t heard any additional news on if more Raptors have been tested.
