Basketball superstar Kevin Durant and three other Brooklyn Nets teammates have tested positive for COVID-19.

"Everyone be careful, take care of yourself and quarantine," Durant said. "We're going to get through this."

Only one of the four basketball players has symptoms, according to a press release from the Nets.

"Of the four, one player is exhibiting symptoms while three are asymptomatic. All four players are presently isolated and under the care of team physicians," the press release says.
