No Thunder player or staff member has tested positive for the coronavirus since the NBA's testing period began June 23, a team spokesman said Thursday. 

All 17 Thunder players have reported back to Oklahoma City for mandatory individual workouts. The team will fly to Disney World next week in preparation for the 22-team season restart. The Thunder will open play Aug. 1 against the Jazz. 

Twenty-five NBA players have tested positive for COVID-19 since June 23 out of the 351 players who have been tested, the league announced Thursday. 

Ten team staff members across the league have tested positive out of 884 tested. 

Per NBA rules, "any player, coach or team staff member who tested positive will remain in self-isolation until they satisfy public health protocols for discontinuing isolation and have been cleared by a physician."
