16 NBA players have tested positive for coronavirus as the league prepares to restart the season in July.

The league says that 16 out of 302 tests returned positive – about 5 percent of players.

Some of the players who tested positive include Nikola Jokic, Malcolm Brogdon, Jabari Parker, and Buddy Hield.

The league still plans to restart the season at Walt Disney World in Orlando, despite a massive surge of coronavirus cases in Florida this week.
