For the second consecutive week, one new NBA player tested positive for coronavirus.
Of the 481 players tested for COVID-19 since March 24, one new player has returned a confirmed positive test.
One case per week seems like a reasonable baseline for this period.
The NBA has previously avoided coronavirus at an even better rate. Just two players tested positive over a three-week span in January/February.
But that level of success was achieved only through enhanced restrictions and proved to be fleeting.
So, the NBA (and country) are heading in the right direction – while coronavirus remains a hazard. In this environment, one player testing positive per week seems to be near the center of the expected range.
