Indiana Pacers guard Malcolm Brogdon has tested positive for the coronavirus, but is anticipating a speedy recovery.
“I recently tested positive for the Covid virus and am currently in quarantine,” Brogdon 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.”
Brogdon was playing extremely well before the season was suspended, averaging career highs in points (16.3), assists (7.1), and rebounds (4.7).
In addition to his importance to the Pacers on the court, Brogdon is also incredibly important to the Player’s Association, serving on the executive committee as a Vice President.
A few weeks ago, Brogdon and fellow VP Jaylen Brown protested in support of the Black Lives Matter movement in Atlanta, Georgia.
As of now, it’s expected that Brogdon will be ready to go when the season resumes in Orlando, Florida on July 31.
However, if we’ve learned anything from this current pandemic, it’s that very little is certain.
