The Sixers will start contact tracing today, and will do a new round of testing in accordance with the NBA’s health and safety protocols.
Curry, who sat out the Nets game with left ankle soreness, spent the first quarter on the bench before the Sixers were made aware of a positive test, sources said. He was wearing a mask and was seated next to assistant coach Sam Cassell and center Joel Embiid.
Curry then left the court area and headed into isolation. He left the Barclays Center separately from the team.
Embiid, who has a 3-month-old son, told ESPN he plans to self-quarantine from his family until he is satisfied he didn’t contract the virus.
Philadelphia is next scheduled to play Saturday at home against the Denver Nuggets.
