If you’re still confused about Kevin Durant’s weird Friday night, the NBA has released a statement on the matter in an attempt to provide some clarity:

“Kevin Durant has tested negative three times in the last 24 hours, including two negative PCR tests today. However, someone he interacted with this afternoon subsequently had an inconclusive test result return shortly before the game. Durant was initially held out of the game while that result was being reviewed. Under the league’s health and safety protocols, we do not require a player to be quarantined until a close contact has a confirmed positive test.

“During the game, a positive result was returned for the person Durant interacted with this afternoon. Once that test was confirmed positive, out of an abundance of caution, Durant was removed from the game , and contact tracing is underway to determine if he was in fact a close contact of the positive individual.”

Steve Nash said on a Zoom call with reporters after Friday’s loss that he doesn’t expect Durant will travel to Philly, but that has not been decided.
