Per the NBA rules, a player must either be out for a minimum of 10 days or return two negative PCR tests at least 24 hours apart to return to action.

Magic officials said the team’s morning shootaround was canceled out of an abundance of caution.

As of 2:20 p.m. Friday, the Magic’s game in Orlando against the Heat is still on.

The Magic signed four players to 10-day contracts after five players were placed on the COVID-19/reserve list.
