"We have identified his probable source contact who is not part of basketball operations. He has no specific risk factors for COVID-19. We have begun treatment for Stephen and instituted our team protocol for influenza exposure" Dr. Nied stated on Golden State Warriors PR Twitter account.

"I was with Steph on Friday in practice and also in Oakland yesterday afternoon, and he was fine, Warriors' Coach Steve Kerr said to reporters. "So he woke up this morning feeling sick. I know his young son was sick for a couple of days, so he probably got it from his son, but our doctors checked him out, and it is the basic flu."

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, the NBA is allegedly preparing to host games without any fans, according to The Athletic's reporter Shams Charania.

Curry's sickness during the midst of this coronavirus scare has placed strong concern amongst the nation. Now that it's confirmed that it's the basic flu, a great deal of relief has overcame many.
