ESPN’s NBA analyst Doris Burke tests positive for coronavirus

ESPN basketball analyst Doris Burke revealed she tested positive for coronavirus, she revealed on The Woj Pod on Friday.

Burke said it took her eight days to receive the test results and has been symptom free. She found out Wednesday.

Two weeks ago, Burke served as the color commentator for the Dallas Mavericks and Denver Nuggets contest that turned out to be the final NBA contest before commissioner Adam Silver suspended the regular season due to the coronavirus outbreak.

During that broadcast, news of Utah Jazz player Rudy Gobert’s presumed positive test for COVID-19 broke.

Burke said she first felt her symptoms that day in Dallas, feeling tired and experiencing a headache. She experienced extreme fatigue in the following days and decided she should be tested on March 17 at a Philadelphia hospital, she said.
