Wood reportedly still has to pass a few medical tests, but is expected to be fully cleared on Thursday.
The Pistons announced on March 14 that one of their players had tested positive for the coronavirus, which at the time marked the first player outside of the Utah Jazz to have tested positive, however Wood’s name wasn’t revealed. Pensack later confirmed the news.
It’s not clear specifically where or when the 24-year-old contracted the virus, however the Pistons did host the Jazz just days before the league suspended operations earlier this month. Wood matched up against Jazz veteran Rudy Gobert — who was the first player in the league to test positive, which prompted it to quickly shut down — multiple times in that contest, and even posted a picture of him throwing a dunk down over Gobert to his Instagram after the game.
Wood and Gobert are among several in the league to have been hit with the coronavirus. Gobert’s teammate Donovan Mitchell tested positive along with four Brooklyn Nets players, including Kevin Durant. The Philadelphia 76ers, Denver Nuggets, Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics have all confirmed cases within their organizations, too.
According to the Detroit Free Press, 17 members of the Pistons’ traveling party, including five players, were tested for the coronavirus, though nobody outside of Wood had tested positive. The team and staff self-isolated since.
Wood has averaged 13.1 points and 6.3 rebounds this season, his fourth in the league, in more than 21 minutes per game for the Pistons.
