Sacramento Kings interim head coach Alvin Gentry has tested positive for COVID-19 and will not be available to coach the Kings as they take on the Washington Wizards on Wednesday night, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Gentry, 67, informed Wojnarowski of his status, stating that he’s largely asymptomatic except for a scratchy throat. Gentry will need to register two negative tests 24 hours apart in order to return to the sidelines.
As a result, the Kings canceled their morning shootaround on Wednesday, and the team is testing to discover whether there are more positive tests.
Kings assistants Mike Longabardi and Doug Christie are the likely candidates to take over for Gentry while he is out.
