The Nets said one of the player has symptoms of the virus and the other three are asymptomatic.
"All four players are presently isolated and under the care of team physicians," the team said.
Three other NBA players are known to have tested positive for coronavirus: Utah Jazz All-Stars Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell and Detroit Pistons forward Christian Wood.

"The health of our players and staff is of the highest priority to the organization and the team is doing everything within its power to ensure that those affected receive the best care possible."
