The Philadelphia 76ers announced Thursday that three of members of its organization have tested positive for COVID-19 coronavirus after receiving tests. Everyone else came back negative. Here’s a statement from the team via Woj:

So they stated its organization members and did not specify whether any players were infected by the virus. We’ll keep an eye out for updates on the Sixers condition. They had been dealing with big injuries to both Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons.

NBA commissioner recently Adam Silver announced earlier Thursday that practice facilities would be shut down to both staff and players. It’s no surprise this announcement comes after several teams began releasing test results for their teams.
