Jan. 8 (UPI) -- The Philadelphia 76ers stayed overnight in New York after guard Seth Curry tested positive for COVID-19.
The team is quarantined and in the process of contact tracing. Sixers players and coaches will be retested Friday.
Sixers center Joel Embiid also told ESPN he plans to self-quarantine from his family until he is satisfied that he does not have COVID-19.
Curry, 30, is averaging a career-high 17 points, 3.6 assists and 2.3 rebounds per game this season. He has made nearly 60% of his 3-point attempts.
The Nets beat the 76ers 122-109 on Thursday at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Curry did not play due to left ankle soreness and spent the first quarter on the bench before he left the court area and went into isolation. He was seated next to Embiid and 76ers assistant coach Sam Cassell.
The 76ers are scheduled to host the Denver Nuggets at 3 p.m. EST Saturday in Philadelphia.
The Nets face the Memphis Grizzlies at 8 p.m. EST Friday in Memphis. They still are expected to play in that game, pending a round of negative COVID-19 results.
The NBA announced Thursday that four out of 498 players tested since Dec. 30 have returned positive results.
