Jabari Parker, caught playing tennis in a public park despite announcing he has coronavirus

TMZ released two photos of Parker, who is seen holding a racket on a court. He is one of the Kings' positives.


Just three days after Jabari Parker announced he tested positive for the coronavirus, the Sacramento Kings forward was photographed playing tennis at Chicago's Longfellow Park on Saturday. TMZ posted two photos of Parker, who is seen holding a racket on a tennis court, wearing a black shorts and T-shirt, and smiling in one of the images.

After the photos were released, the Kings told NBC Sports California that "We are aware of the report and are collecting additional information. We have no further comment at this time."

Parker was one of three Kings players to test positive for coronavirus this week. The center Alex Len also recognized a positive test while the guard Buddy Hield contracted the virus.

"Several days ago I tested positive for coronavirus and immediately isolated myself in Chicago, which is where I am staying," Parker said in a statement released Wednesday. He added, "I am making progress in my recovery and I feel good. I look forward to joining my teammates in Orlando when we return to the field of play to resume the NBA season."

The Kings are one of 22 teams to travel to Orlando, Florida, in the next two weeks for the restart of the 2019-20 NBA season at Disney World.

While several Kings players have returned to Sacramento to train at the Golden 1 Center, Parker has remained in Chicago, and there is no official information on when he will be allowed to join the team before heading to Orlando.
