Three days ago, Jabari parker came out with an official statement informing that he has been tested positive for coronavirus and was in isolation.
“Several days ago I tested positive for COVID-19 and immediately self-isolated in Chicago which is where I remain, I am progressing in my recovery and feeling well. I look forward to joining my teammates in Orlando as we return to the court for the resumption of the NBA season,” said Parker in an official statement on Wednesday.
The Kings were supposed to take care of Jabari’s isolation and hence are at fault in this too. The Kings came out with a statement to NBC Sports California about the event :

The statement which Jabari came with on Wednesday said “several days ago”, so there may be the possibility that Jabri has completed his isolation period because of which he is out on the court.
According to some sources, a few days ago, Jabari Parker was also spotted in a restaurant in California. This clearly shows the lack of concern in Jabari regarding his condition and the current situation of coronavirus.
The bubble restart is near and 16 out of 302 NBA players have been tested positive to coronavirus. Seeing the current situation of Jabari players may find it tough in Walt Disney World if they have to isolate due to coronavirus.
