A few days before testing positive for COVID-19, Durant was seen meeting acclaimed Canadian artist Drake. After Durant's diagnosis, the rapper reportedly placed himself in quarantine as a precaution. Reports were also hinting at Kevin Durant's return to the NBA if the league returned after June. Durant will also be participating in the NBA 2k tournament which will be held this weekend and will be broadcast on ESPN. Though the league is trying for a mid-June return, no official statement has been made.
