American basketball legend Patrick Ewing is in hospital having tested positive for coronavirus.
The former New York Knicks centre, is now the head coach of the Georgetown University men’s team. Ewing played in the NBA for 17 seasons and won two Olympic gold medals.
While Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry says he’s “absolutely ready” to return to the court this summer. The NBA are aiming to resume games in mid-July with collective training set to be allowed from early June.
Curry says it “makes sense” to plan for the league getting back underway but admits it’ll be “tough” facing opponents who previously tested positive for COVID-19.
