Kings investigating whether Jabari Parker played tennis without mask days after coronavirus reveal

Yahoo Sports

The Sacramento Kings are looking into a report that guard Jabari Parker played tennis without a mask just days after revealing a positive coronavirus test. Parker was spotted at a Chicago park without a mask three days after announcing his positive test, according to TMZ.

It’s unclear whether Parker, 25, violated any NBA rules. The league requires players to refrain from physical activity for 14 days following a positive test. While Parker revealed his positive test three days before his tennis outing, it’s possible he had already battled coronavirus for weeks, and already completed his quarantining period.

That’s what Parker reportedly told Ben Stinar of The Big Lead.

The Kings told the Sacramento Bee the team was aware of the report and gathering additional information.

Parker is one of three players on the Kings to reveal a positive test. Buddy Hield and Alex Len also announced positive tests. All three players plan to join the Kings in Orlando once they are cleared.
