Kevin Durant and three other Brooklyn Nets players tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday (Wednesday morning IST). While everyone who has come in contact with the team has been asked to either get tested or self-quarantine, singer Drake and Kevin Durant were spotted together days before Durant's test came back positive. As Durant is asymptomatic for the virus, fans have asked 'Does Drake have coronavirus?', hoping the Canadian rapper got himself tested.

The photos of Drake and Kevin Durant hanging out together were shared by the rapper himself. Many fans noted that Drake and Kevin Durant could have met while Durant was in LA as his team was at home playing against the Lakers. Durant was out of the entire NBA 2019-20 season after tearing his Achilles heel during last season's NBA Finals.
