    Did they ever release the names of the Lakers who tested positive?

    This is a little wonky for this forum, but some may be curious. Here is an epidemiological review that came out yesterday summarizing the Chinese data.

    A review of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) based on current evidence
    https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ijantimicag.2020.105948
    Key stats: "Most cases were diagnosed in Hubei Province, China (75%). 81% cases were classified as mild, 14% cases were severe, and 5% were critical. The overall case-fatality rate (CFR) was 2.3%, but cases in those aged 70 to 79 years had an 8.0% CFR and cases in those aged 80 years and older had a 14.8% CFR."

    The National Institute of Health has made a web portal for coronavirus science articles, if you want to see others.

    Can't believe they haven't released the name! Think of all the people in Staples that came into contact with those 2 players.
    The newspaper sure didn't have any problem giving out the name of that Jewish guy that gave 40,000 New Yorkers the virus.

    I guess Basketball players are protected.

    I think they are protected by HIPAA, but I could be wrong about that. Confirmed NO is LeBron and Javale. I guess someone could check all their IGs lately to see who is posting with people vs who isn't posting at all and get more no confirmations.

    The Lakers, 76ers and Nuggets all opted to not identify those who tested positive.

    Everyone’s medical records are protected equally by HIPAA laws.

    You mean the players opted, right?

    The teams can’t release medical records, without the players consent. Not only is that protected by HIPAA laws, but the NBA by-laws actually spell this out, too, as well as clarify what limited health/injury info the teams can release without the player’s consent.

    NBA, NBPA Likely To Start New Collective Bargaining Round Due To COVID-19

    The COVID-19 crisis and the suspension of the season will likely force the NBA and its players to have a completely unexpected round of collective bargaining in the coming weeks. The two sides will likely negotiate a change to the league calendar, temporary or permanent, as well as cap smoothing due to a decline of projected revenue. Other topics such as rules on entering the draft could also come into play.

    "The NBA and the union are going to have to negotiate when they come back," said Brian Windhorst on his podcast. "They're going to have to open the collective bargaining agreement for simple things like changing the league year. The league year is going to change, but they're going to have to be concessions asked by the owners potentially and there are going to be some asks for the players.

    "I believe we are heading for a bargaining session over the summer. The CBA, which was locked in for years, something like seven or eight years, I believe firmly is going to reopen over the summer. There are going to be certain things that can be negotiated. For example, if they're already opening the CBA about how to retrofit the NBA calendar or change the salary cap stuff, maybe they put one-and-done in there while they're doing it. There's going to be negotiations and horse trading. That is why the relationship between players and owners is something to watch right now. They're going to have to get agreement to start playing again. They're going to be outside their parameters that they've agreed to."
