The NBA announced Wednesday that one player out of 485 has tested positive for COVID-19 since March 31.

Any player who returns a positive test must isolate until they are cleared under the rules established by the league and its players' association, which were created in accordance with CDC guidance.

According to ESPN's Baxter Holmes, the NBA expects all arenas to be at full capacity next season with more testing available and more vaccines being administered in the United States.
