Former NBA great and TNT analyst Charles Barkley says he has tested negative for COVID-19.
“I’ve received my COVID-19 test results this morning & they are negative,” Barkley said in a statement. “I’d like to thank everyone for reaching out and expressing your concern and support. You all be safe and please take the necessary actions to help ensure your well-being.”
The 57-year-old said he was not feeling well when he got back from a trip to New York and was told by doctors to quarantine himself for 48 hours. Barkley said he took a test for the coronavirus back on March 12.
On March 11, the NBA suspended its season after Rudy Gobert tested positive for COVID-19. Since Gobert tested positive, Donovan Mitchell, Kevin Durant along with three Brookley Nets players and Marcus Smart confirmed that they also had the coronavirus.
