"Durant says he is feeling fine: 'Everyone be careful, take care of yourself and quarantine. We're going to get through this,'" Charania tweeted. 

Wojnarowski's original report said the Nets tested the players upon returning from San Francisco.

"Nets paid out of pocket to a private company to conduct tests. One player awoke with some aches today; rest have experienced no symptoms," Wojnarowski tweeted.

These reports come after the NBA suspended its season on March 11. Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert was the first player to test positive. Donovan Mitchell, Gobert's Jazz teammate, also tested positive.
