Recent Los Angeles Lakers rumors involve Jared Dudley, who during a radio appearance, said that he was not one of the two Lakers players to test positive for coronavirus.

Despite the NBA suspending operations, there have still been plenty of Los Angeles Lakers rumors to digest. After four players from the Brooklyn Nets, one of whom was Kevin Durant, tested positive for coronavirus, the Lakers then had to be tested.

The Lakers were the last team to face off with the Nets prior to the season being suspended. After undergoing tests last week, it was revealed that two Lakers had tested positive for the virus.

So far, two Lakers have said that they didn’t test positive. JaVale McGee, who has a history of asthma, was one of the players to say he was negative. The other was Quinn Cook, who revealed that he was negative during an appearance on Chris Haynes’ podcast. Now, we can add a third player to that list.

While talking to Frank Isola and Wes Wilcox of Sirius XM Radio, veteran Jared Dudley revealed that he wasn’t one of the two players to test positive.

"“I’m feeling great… I did not positive, because they said the doctor would hit you up, and the doctor has not hit me up. I feel great.”"

Some people will note that the doctor may not have gotten in touch with Dudley. The results of these tests can take a few days to come out. However, if the Lakers have revealed that two players have tested positive, you would hope that the doctors had already let those people know they were one of the two.

With Dudley, Cook and McGee revealing they tested negative, that leaves 14 more players on the roster who were tested. The coaching staff and other personnel, in addition to the three players who weren’t originally tested because they were out of town, will also be tested, according to Ramona Shelburne of ESPN.

Practice facilities around the league were shut down as the NBA tries their best to flatten the curve and slow the spread of this virus. Hopefully, everyone will do their part so that things can get back to normal as quickly as possible.
