Just when the Philadelphia 76ers started to look like a real danger in the Eastern Conference, one of their key players is expected to be out for a while.
Sharpshooter Seth Curry has tested positive for Coronavirus and remains in self-isolation.
Sixers guard Seth Curry returned a positive test for the coronavirus, which the team learned of near the start of a loss in Brooklyn tonight, sources tell ESPN. He went to an isolation room immediately, and thereafter left arena separate from team.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) January 8, 2021
ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Curry spent the first quarter on bench before Sixers were made aware of a positive test and then left the court-area and headed into isolation.
Also, Joel Embiid, who has a three-month-old-son and next to Curry during the game, told ESPN he plans to self quarantine from his family until he is certain he didn’t contract the virus.
Curry, who was dealt to the 76ers from the Dallas Mavericks in exchange for Josh Richardson and Tyler Bey, played 64 regular season games in 2019/2020 where he averaged 12.4 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.9 assists per contest.
