Knicks guard Immanuel Quickley is one of three players of the USA Select Team being held out of Team USA training camp due to COVID-19 protocols, according to a new report.

Per ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, Quickley, PJ Washington, and Miles Bridges (both of the Hornets) are being held out of camp due to COVID-19 protocols, though all members of Team USA were at practice today, per Windhorst.

Team USA head coach Gregg Popovich was asked about the report on Thursday, and while he didn’t name names, he confirmed that three players had tested positive.

“Everybody has to still be vigilant and careful,” Popovich said. “It is true that three of the select players came up positive. I don’t know their names. But it’s confined to that.”

Quickley is one of two Knicks on the USA Select Team, alongside fellow rising second-year pro Obi Toppin.

Quickley spoke with members of the media on Wednesday about working on his mid-range game during his time with the Select Team, and also touched on what it’s been like working with Kevin Durant.

Marc Berman of the New York Post points out that the Select Team’s practice sessions are set to come to a close on Friday, which would likely mean Quickley’s practice time against Team USA has come to an end.
