Nine more NBA players have tested positive for the coronavirus, the league announced Thursday.
The league said the positive tests came as a result of 344 tests conducted between June 24-29. This brings the total to 25 players who have tested positive since testing began on Jun 23 out of 351 total tests for COVID-19.
The NBA said they conducted 884 tests of team staff between June 23 and 29, with 10 positive results.
Commissioner Adam Silver said earlier this week the NBA remains "pretty confident" about their plans to return safely to play.
"One thing we are learning about this virus is much (is) unpredictable, and we and our players together with their union look at the data on a daily basis," Silver said. "If there were something to change that was outside of the scope of what we are playing for, certainly we would revisit our plans.
