Kings’ Parker, Len test positive for COVID-19

Forward Jabari Parker and center Alex Len, both members of the Sacramento Kings, said Wednesday they’ve tested positive for the coronavirus.

“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.”

In a story post on Instagram, Len said he was tested Tuesday in Sacramento.

“I want to thank the Sacramento Kings for their great care and the NBA for putting the protocols in place to allow me to catch this early,” Len’s statement said. “I have immediately entered isolation and look forward to being cleared and rejoining my teammates for our playoff push.”

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

Parker, 25, has appeared in one game with the Kings. He was traded to Sacramento in February by the Atlanta Hawks, after averaging 15 points in 32 games with the Hawks this season.

Len, 27, is averaging 8.3 points and 6.0 rebounds in 49 games. He was also acquired by the Kings from Atlanta in February and has appeared in nine games for Sacramento.
