The news comes one week after the NBA announced it is suspending the season after Utah Jazz player Rudy Gobert tested positive for the Covid-19 virus.

Two other NBA players — Donovan Mitchell of the Utah Jazz and an unnamed player on the Detroit Pistons — have also tested positive for the virus, bringing the total number of players in the league known to have the virus to seven.

Durant has been sidelined since June 10, 2019 after he tore his Achilles tendon during Game 5 of the 2019 NBA Finals.

He chose to leave the Golden State Warriors and sign a four-year, $164 million contract with the Nets during the off-season.

He has yet to suit up and play for the Nets.
