Kevin Durant was pulled from Friday night's loss to the Raptors in the third quarter due to contact tracing.  The Nets star had been in contact with someone on Friday who had an inconclusive test.

KD was initially pulled from pregame warm-ups only to later be allowed to play in the game.  A second test on the person with the earlier inconclusive test came back positive and KD was then pulled from the game.

KD, who already had COVID-19 and was shown to still have the antibody back in January, wasn't happy at all about being pulled from the game.

It's incredible to me that the NBA recognizes that a bubble isn't necessary, but doesn't recognize that a guy who has the antibodies is extremely unlikely to spread the virus.

Not to mention the fact that KD has tested negative and the overwhelming majority of NBA players will be completely fine even if they do contract the virus.

Normally I wouldn't side with KD, but he's 100% right about this.
