“The thing that I felt the most was fatigue and headache,” Burke said about having coronavirus. “So for a good stretch of the first two weeks of that, I was just thinking I had a bad flu, because my symptoms were not aligning with what was being told were the main symptoms — the shortness of breath, the pressure on the chest — I didn’t have those scary symptoms. So for a good stretch of time, I didn’t think I had it. But then I finally decided to get tested.

Longtime NBA analyst Doris Burke joined Adrian Wojnarowski on The Woj Pod to share her journey Last Wednesday, two weeks later, she tested positive for COVID - 19 . The longtime NBA announcer and When asked about how she thinks the NBA and athletes will handle the health concerns once

ESPN NBA analyst Doris Burke revealed in an interview Friday that she tested positive for coronavirus, and it took eight days to get results. During that broadcast, news of Utah Jazz player Rudy Gobert' s presumed positive test for COVID - 19 broke. Burke said she first felt her symptoms that day in Dallas

“It took eight days to get the results, and by the time I had gotten the results of the test, I was starting to come out of it. Was I scared? I had some measure of anxiety. I was sleeping 16, 17 hours a day, and the other time I was not getting out of bed, so I wasn’t doing a whole lot.”

Burke tested positive for coronavirus at the end of March, becoming one of the first publicly known NBA figures to contract the virus. When asked about the challenges the NBA will face as it attempts to mount a comeback next month, she didn’t mince words.

“It’s a monster of a project to try to get right and put in place,” Burke said. “As I hear players talk about pre-existing conditions or talk about their fears, I absolutely understand it. And one of the things I thought most about is that a lot of these guys have young kids. You’re not only going down to the bubble, but at some point you’re going to leave that bubble, and what do you do as a player if you’re the parent of a young child? Do you go to a hotel when you get back to your respective market, and do you quarantine for two weeks and therefore stay away from your children longer to make sure, “OK, I’m not positive”?

  Cubs pitching coach Tommy Hottovy details COVID-19 bout While Hottovy is no longer positive for the virus, he says he is still not fully back to himself. He’s through the worst of it, which required some time in the hospital.One important member of the Cubs organization won’t be anxiously awaiting the results of his test. Pitching coach Tommy Hottovy has already endured a bout with COVID-19, he tells 670 The Score’s Mully and Haugh (h/t Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune, via Twitter).

The NBA ' s potential return to Disney World poses a lot of questions. Brian Windhorst, Bobby Marks and Tim Bontemps talk about what they've heard from within the league about life inside the bubble, coronavirus testing protocols, and whether it' s even worth it for

“The primary thought I have as it relates to fear doesn’t necessarily have to do with myself, it has to do more with anybody who’s not been infected, had COVID, recovered and doesn’t have immunity, because I do worry. … As much as I know that the NBA is going to do absolutely everything in their power to make this environment as safe as possible, the fact of the matter is the ultimate bad outcome remains a possibility. There’s inherent risk that everybody who goes down to Orlando assumes, and how you work that out in your own mind is a very personal choice. And I don’t think we should criticize, judge or in any way, shape or form have negative feelings for those who express concern, because it’s legitimate and it’s real.”

Burke also offered her thoughts on several notable figures around the league in the interview, including Gregg Popovich, Mark Jackson and Zion Williamson.

The league’s plan to play the final three months of the season at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando will cost it over $150 million, according to Brian Windhorst of ESPN. That includes the cost of housing all 22 teams at three resorts. It also includes three arenas, seven practice courts, meals, and security, among other costs.

More businesses, camps and schools may open soon. The state reported just 11 new deaths from Covid - 19 on Monday, the lowest new daily death toll since March 31, when the state had only four fatalities, according to the health department' s data.

Here are some other notes related to the NBA’s hiatus:

  • Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is advocating for the NBA to keep a permanent schedule change, as detailed by the Dallas Morning News. The league is settling on a late-July resumption with much of the typical offseason festivities set to happen in October, though next season’s schedule is largely unknown at this time.
  • The 88 total seeding games in Orlando will count toward the regular-season statistics, ESPN’s Bobby Marks tweets. However, games as of March 11 will be used for any player who has bonuses in his contract.
  • Mark Medina of USA Today examines how Disney employees will work inside the NBA’s bubble when the league resumes in Orlando. The first games are set to begin during the final week of July, with the NBA under pressure to ensure that protocols are followed and safety is prioritized.
