Nike bragged about working with sports scientists to create the “most technically advanced jersey and shorts.” It promised to keep players “cool, dry and completely mobile.” Just one problem: The uniforms are falling apart.

NEW YORK (AP) — The NBA said Wednesday that 48 players have tested positive for the coronavirus since testing resumed last week.

The league and National Basketball Players Association said 546 players were tested between Nov. 24-30 in the initial phase of testing after returning to team markets. That means about 9% of the tests were positive.

Any player with a confirmed positive test is isolated until cleared by rules established by the league and union in accordance with CDC guidance.
