Poole became the first Warriors player to enter the protocols. Per league rules, he must now sit out 10 days or return two negative tests in a 24-hour span to return.
Poole, 22, is off to a career season, his third as a pro, with averages of 17.9 points and 3.4 rebounds in 28 games.
“The Warriors hadn’t had any players in the health and safety protocols prior to today’s update on Poole, but they faced the Knicks on Tuesday,” wrote Luke Adams of Hoops Rumors. “New York has been experiencing a minor COVID-19 outbreak and placed Kevin Knox in the protocols on Thursday after he logged 20 minutes vs. Golden State.”
