Recent Los Angeles Lakers rumors involve Anthony Davis, who said that he tested negative for coronavirus.

With the NBA season suspended, Los Angeles Lakers rumors have been popping up periodically. Most of those Lakers rumors have involved updates involving the coronavirus.

The virus is what has not only the NBA on suspension but everything around the world virtually coming to a half. The NBA has not been able to avoid the impact of this deadly virus.

There have been numerous players and personnel that have tested positive, including two players on the Lakers. The names of the players that tested positive on the Lakers has not been released, but there have been a few players that let it be known that they tested negative.

JaVale McGee, whose battle with asthma has been well documented, was the first player to say that he tested negative. Jared Dudley also said he was negative while on Sirius XM Radio. While making an appearance on Chris Haynes’ podcast, Quinn Cook also revealed he had tested negative for the virus.

Now, a fourth Lakers player has revealed that he tested positive. Superstar Anthony Davis, according to Tania Ganguli of the Los Angeles Times, said that he was negative for the virus.

Monday will mark the two-week mark that Davis and his teammates have been in quarantine. Since the Brooklyn Nets had four players, including Kevin Durant, test positive, the Lakers have been tested and quarantined as a result.

Davis discussed the process and how difficult it could be.

"“It’s kind of tricky because some guys, you feel fine and you could have it, asymptomatic. And some guys you have all the symptoms,” Davis said. “I felt fine and I felt great. I still do. [At the time] I was like that doesn’t mean I don’t have it. We all showed up and took the test. It was fine.”"

Davis said that the team doctors have given them advice on how to stay safe, something he is trying his best to do as the number of positive tests and deaths continues to rise at a rapid pace.

"“I just saw yesterday the United States became No. 1 in cases,” Davis said. “It’s kind of just getting out of hand. I’m trying to stay as safe as possible, doing what our team doctors told us and just trying to have a good spirit about everything and tell the people I can reach out to, to stay safe.”"

Right now, there is no concrete plan in place as to when the NBA will return to playing games. However, with how things are going currently, it is fair to assume that it will be weeks, if not months until games are being held again.

That is something that has also been a topic of discussion, as Davis’ teammate, LeBron James, isn’t in favor of playing games without fans in attendance.

However, James, like many people around the NBA, is eager to get back on the court and will do whatever it takes to start playing games again.
