Less than 24 hours after the NBA announced Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell had tested positive for COVID-19, we now have another scare within the NBA community.

During Thursday night’s special edition of Inside The NBA, TNT analyst Charles Barkley revealed he had been self-quarantined after falling ill while traveling and that he had taken a coronavirus test but still has not gotten the result.

“Well I spent earlier part of the week in NYC, when I got to Atlanta I wasn’t feeling well, I talked to a couple of doctors and they told me to self-quarantine for the next 48 hours. I started yesterday and today was my second day. I haven’t been feeling great and they didn’t want to take any chances so they told me to self quarantine for 48 hours. I’ve taken the coronavirus test late this afternoon and I have not gotten the results back.”
