However, Curry played 36 minutes in the Sixers’ win over the Washington Wizards Wednesday night and then traveled with the team to Brooklyn.

According to Wojnarowski, Curry went to an isolation room after learning of the positive test and left the arena.

The Sixers stayed in New York Thursday night and will conduct contact tracing Friday morning.

The Sixers are scheduled to host the Denver Nuggets Saturday. The Nets play the Grizzlies in Memphis Friday night.

It is unclear at this time if the team’s schedule will change.

This all comes just days after the NBA’s new, stricter COVID rules took effect.

Those rules state that players must sit out 10 days or have two negative tests before returning to the court.

The player must be asymptomatic with no concerns about reinfection and a team doctor must clear the player then the case must be reviewed by a league doctor.

As the team quarantines in Brooklyn, Joel Embiid told ESPN that he won’t return home and will continue to quarantine away from his family. That means staying away from his baby boy who was born in September.
