After four Brooklyn Nets tested positive for coronavirus, the Los Angeles Lakers decided to test their players and see if they were infected. The Nets were the last team to face the Lakers before the NBA suspended the season last week.

Earlier this week, it was revealed that four Nets players had tested positive for COVID-19, including Kevin Durant, who wasn't an active player this year.

That led the Lakers to test their players on Wednesday and now the results have seen the light. According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, two Lakers have tested positive for the coronavirus. Further, the organization team will test the rest of the players who did not take tests Wednesday morning.

The NBA has tried to make the right steps to stop the spread of the coronavirus, but every day we know about a new case. LeBron James isolated himself trying to stay in the best shape possible while the league returns, but this changes everything.

We don't know who are these players, but this situation isn't easy for anybody.
