Select players and staff on the Oklahoma City Thunder tested negative for COVID-19, the team announced Wednesday.

"The Oklahoma City Thunder consulted with infectious disease experts for a recommendation on the players and staff who needed COVID-19 testing based on their exposure at the game on March 11. All results have come back negative," the team's statement reads.

The statement added, "Recognizing the stress on the state of Oklahoma's medical system, the Thunder did not use state resources and chose an alternative path for testing of its personnel."

Oklahoma City was set to play the Utah Jazz on March 11, but the game wound up being postponed following news of Jazz center Rudy Gobert's positive test for COVID-19. Gobert's teammate, Donovan Mitchell, was later revealed as the second NBA player to test positive for the coronavirus.

Seven NBA players in total have now tested positive for the COVID-19 virus after the announcement Tuesday of positive results for four Brooklyn Nets players, including Kevin Durant.

Detroit Pistons big man Christian Wood also tested positive for COVID-19.
