The Knicks have shut down their facility after receiving news of three positive COVID-19 tests from employees, reports Malika Andrews of ESPN (via Twitter).
The Knicks released a short statement on Tuesday evening saying that the tests were from "routine screenings" and that all three employees are "asymptomatic and currently under quarantine." This could be a blip on the radar in the grand scheme of things as long as the Knicks can get the outbreak under control in short order. Madison Square Garden and the training center have been shut down in light of the news and will be "temporarily closed to allow for a thorough cleaning of the facility." The NBA has not had very many issues with positive coronavirus tests due in large part to their successful 'bubble' concept that was utilized to complete the 2019-20 season. More will be known after tests are conducted within the Knicks organization on Wednesday morning.
