Jakob Pöltl is said to have been put on the Covid list by the NBA on Wednesday and would thus miss several San Antonio Spurs games in the best basketball league in the world. This was reported by the website “The Athletic”, citing unspecified sources. Whether the Viennese tested positive for the corona virus or was taken out of play as a contact person was not known to the portal for the time being. A confirmation from Pöltl is not yet available.
In the event that the Spurs center tested positive, its downtime would be longer than as a contact person. The 26-year-old would only be able to play games for his club again if he had given two negative PCR tests 24 hours apart. On Wednesday evening (local time / 1.30 a.m. CET), the Spurs will receive the Dallas Mavericks in a Texan derby.
