Marcus Smart cleared from coronavirus
Marcus Smart was among the NBA players who tested positive for the coronavirus, but he says he has been cleared from it.
Smart sent a tweet on Sunday night sharing an update about his status.
Corona Free as of two days ago. Cleared by Mass Dept of Health.
Thanks for everyone’s thoughts and prayers and I’m doing the same for everyone that’s been effected by this. Stay safe and stay together- apart!

Smart joins Detroit’s Christian Wood and Utah’s Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell as players who have been cleared since having the virus. This is great news, as it’s showing NBA teams may have managed to slow the spread of the virus by cancelling games at the first sign of a player who tested positive.
The entire Oklahoma City Thunder team tested negative a week and a half ago, and only a few other teams — like the Nets and Lakers — have shared that some of their players tested positive.
What does this mean? Why not get the players who tested negative and the ones who have already recovered and start setting them up in the Las Vegas bubble!
