Ball, Rozier among 4 Hornets to enter protocols

The Charlotte Hornets have had four players — LaMelo Ball, Jalen McDaniels, Mason Plumlee and Terry Rozier — enter into the NBA’s health and safety protocols, it was announced Saturday.

The Hornets have sent players and staff home from their practice facility as there’s concern of more possible positive COVID-19 tests, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

If a player has a confirmed positive test for COVID-19, the NBA mandates a minimum of 10 days of isolation away from his team without any physical activity. After that period, a player must undergo a cardiac screening and reconditioning in order to be cleared to return to the court. A player who tests positive also could clear the protocols by returning two negative polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests within a 24-hour period.

The Hornets (13-11) have four games over the next week — at the Atlanta Hawks (Sunday) and home games vs. the Philadelphia 76ers (Monday and Wednesday) and the Sacramento Kings (Friday).

The 20-year-old Ball leads the Hornets in scoring (20.0 points per game), rebounds (7.7 per game), assists (8.2 per game) and steals (1.9 per game).

Rozier is averaging 17.7 points per game, while Plumlee leads the team in blocks (1.0 per game) and is averaging 7.3 rebounds.

McDaniels is averaging 5.5 points and 3.3 rebounds in 15.0 minutes per game.
