Sources: 76ers expect to lose players to tracing


The Philadelphia 76ers are expected to have multiple players miss time due to contact tracing and are still awaiting results of Friday’s coronavirus testing, sources tell ESPN.

Those players were in close contact with Seth Curry, who sources say returned a positive test on Thursday. The team learned of Curry’s positive test near the start of its 122-109 loss to the Nets in Brooklyn on Thursday night, sources said.

Curry, who sat out Thursday’s game with left ankle soreness, spent the first quarter on the bench before the Sixers were made aware of a positive test, sources said. He was wearing a mask and was seated next to assistant coach Sam Cassell and center Joel Embiid.

Curry then left the court area and headed into isolation. He left the Barclays Center separately from the team. The Sixers stayed overnight in New York.

Philadelphia is next scheduled to play Saturday at home against the Denver Nuggets.
