No players, coaches, or officials tested positive for COVID-19 over All-Star weekend.

“All players, coaches, and game officials were tested for COVID three times after arriving in Atlanta, including a final test immediately prior to last night’s All-Star Game. Each of those tests returned a negative result, confirming no one on the court for last night’s events was infected,” released the league in a statement.

Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons left Atlanta early due to contact tracing.

Both Embiid and Simmons have continued to return negative tests, though it is unclear whether they will be available for the Sixers’ game on Thursday.
