"Everybody be careful, take care and quarantine. We will get past this," said all 10 NBA Durant ten stars.
Nets had said earlier Tuesday that four of their players were isolated and under the care of team doctors after they had been diagnosed with Coronavirus, but did not identify the individuals.

Durant signed with Nets last summer but was neglected due to Achilles' injury sustained during the NBA Finals last season when he played for the Golden State Warriors.

The team said: "The organization is currently informing anyone who was aware of contacting players, including new opponents, and is working closely with local and state health authorities to report."

"All players and members of the Nets Travel Group are required to remain isolated, closely monitor their health and maintain ongoing contact with the team's medical staff."

Three of the players were asymptomatic, while one showed symptoms of the rapidly spreading virus just days after Utah Jazz announced that two of its players had confirmed their infection with the Coronavirus.

Nets played their last game against the Lakers in Los Angeles on March 10. A day later, the league suspended its season until further notice, as the coronavirus epidemic struck major sporting events around the world.
