Brooklyn forward Kevin Durant will need to quarantine for seven days after the NBA’s contact tracing initiative revealed that he has been exposed to COVID-19.

Although multiple reports suggest he has tested negative and still has antibodies, the league’s rules do not distinguish between players that have had COVID and those that have not.

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, antibodies are “proteins that help fight off infections and can provide protection against getting that disease again.” Scientists are still unsure what degree of immunity antibodies provide against being infected again.

Durant is thus expected to miss four games for the Nets, beginning Tuesday against Utah and continuing through to Thursday (Philadelphia), Friday (Memphis) and Sunday (Oklahoma City).

The 2014 MVP is expected to return on Jan. 12 against the Denver Nuggets.
