Kings forward Parker tests positive for virus

Sacramento Kings forward Jabari Parker said Wednesday that he tested positive for the coronavirus but expects to join his team in Orlando, Florida, when the season resumes.

“Several days ago I tested positive for COVID-19 and immediately self-isolated in Chicago which is where I remain,” Parker said in a statement released by the team. “I am progressing in my recovery and feeling well. I look forward to joining my teammates in Orlando as we return to the court for the resumption of the NBA season.”

The Kings (28-36) are one of the 22 NBA teams scheduled to resume games on July 30 in Orlando.

Parker, 25, played in 33 games for the Kings this season, averaging 14.7 points and 5.9 rebounds.
