Pacers’ Brogdon tested positive for COVID-19

Indiana Pacers G Malcolm Brogdon announced today that he has tested positive for COVID-19.  

Here is a statement from Brogdon:

“I recently tested positive for the COVID virus and am currently in quarantine,” he said. “I’m doing well, feeling well, and progressing well. I plan to join my teammates in Orlando for the resumption of the NBA season and playoffs.”

Not having Brogdon would be a massive loss for the Pacers. In 48 games, the third-year player is averaging career-highs in points(16.7), assists(7.1), and rebounds(4.7) per game. Brogdon injured his quad in March, but he announced in April that he was healthy. 

The 27-year-old Brogdon joined the Pacers last offseason in a sign-and-trade with the Bucks and signed a four-year, $85 million deal with Indiana. 

The NBA s expected to get underway on July 30. Teams will arrive in Orlando on July 7.
