After 3 COVID tests, LeBron James has officially been placed in the NBA’s health and safety protocols. The flamboyant, opinionated player who was recently kicked out of a game for giving a dirty elbow to the face of Detroit Pistons player Isaiah Stewart and received a ridiculous one-game suspension. Last week, the NBA fined him $15K for an obscene gesture, when he intentionally grabbed his genitals on the court.
TMZ Sports has learned … LeBron James tested positive for COVID-19 this afternoon using a lateral flow test. James was given a follow-up PCR test to confirm the diagnosis. However, that test came back negative. LeBron was then given a third tie-breaker test … which came back positive.
We’re told the team has chartered a private jet so Bron can fly back to Los Angeles in a safe manner.
We’re also told James is currently asymptomatic. LeBron is fully vaccinated.
James will miss tonight’s game against the Sacramento Kings, the league announced Tuesday.
