Ball, 3 other Hornets in NBA's health and safety protocols

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Four Charlotte Hornets players, including last year's Rookie of the Year LaMelo Ball, have been placed in the NBA's health and safety protocols on Saturday, an indicator they have tested positive of the coronavirus.

Along with Ball, guard Terry Rozier, center Mason Plumlee and forward Jalen McDaniels will be sidelined for at least 10 days, or until they have recorded two negative tests in a 24-hour period according to league rules.

Barring more positive tests, the Hornets would meet the NBA's minimum required eight players to play their next scheduled game on Sunday night at Atlanta. The team is scheduled to depart for Atlanta on Saturday.
