The Celtics have all of the results for the players and staff members who underwent testing for COVID-19. With the exception of Marcus Smart — who revealed he tested positive on Thursday — all of the tests came back negative.

John Karalis of MassLive was the first to report the news.

I was tested 5 days ago and the results came back tonight, which were positive. Ive been self quarantined since the test, thank goodness. COVID-19 must be taken w the highest of seriousness. I know it’s a #1 priority for our nations health experts, & we must get more testing ASAP

Along with Smart, Rudy Gobert, Donovan Mitchell, Christian Wood, two Lakers players and four Nets players, including Kevin Durant, have tested positive for COVID-19.

Three members of the Sixers organization tested positive, as did one from the Nuggets. Neither team disclosed if the individuals were players or if they held other roles within their organizations.
