LA Clippers staff quarantining in Utah after positive coronavirus test

New, comment

So far, it hasn’t touched players, reportedly.

The LA Clippers are on the road, gearing up for a game against the Phoenix Suns Sunday evening, after a quick trip to play the Utah Jazz, and it turns out not all of the organization has actually left Utah.

A positive coronavirus test among the Clippers support staff has led to a group remaining in quarantine in Utah, according to a report from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski Sunday afternoon.

However, Wojnarowski reports that at this point, no players or coaches are involved in the contact tracing and quarantine.

So that would appear to clear the team to play the game Sunday against the Suns, although one never quite knows in these circumstances and the situation can change quickly.

ESPN’s Ohm Youngmisuk reports as of Sunday afternoon, the Clippers do have enough staff to help the team in Sunday’s game.

Beyond that, depending on how many people among the quarantined ultimately test positive and how much exposure they’ve had to the rest of the traveling party, more positive test results could be on the horizon. But obviously that’s speculative and we’ll see what happens. We’ll keep you posted if there’s developments to this story and obviously best wishes for anyone who’s tested positive.
