The corona virus has hit millions of people across the country and the world but even so, sometimes you see a headline and it really catches your eye.

So it is with former Blue Devil Seth Curry.

Curry, who was traded to Philadelphia before the season, has had to carve out his NBA career the hard way.

He’s built a solid niche though and like his father Dell and brother Seth, has become an elite shooter.

Curry, who’s averaging 17 ppg this season, along with 3.6 assists, tested positive for the virus Thursday. He was actually at a game, although not playing due to ankle soreness, when he got the word and immediately left to go into quarantine.

Curry now married to Doc Rivers’ daughter Callie, has a three-month old child and indicated he’ll be quarantining alone to protect them.

The good news is that while he tested positive he is currently asymptomatic so let’s hope it stays that way.
