Former Oklahoma State guard Marcus Smart of the Boston Celtics announced Thursday evening he’s tested positive for coronavirus.

Smart made the announcement in a tweet, saying he was tested five days ago and it came back tonight he’s positive.

Smart says he’s been in self-quarantine since then.

Smart posted two tweets, saying, ” I was tested 5 days ago and the results came back tonight, which were positive. Ive been self quarantined since the test, thank goodness. COVID-19 must be taken w the highest of seriousness. I know it’s a #1 priority for our nations health experts, & we must get more testing ASAP. I’ve had no symptoms and I feel great. But the younger generation in our country MUST self distance. This is not a joke. Not doing so is selfish. Together we can beat this, but we must beat it together by being apart for a short while. Much love!!

Smart is in his sixth season in the NBA, all of them with the Boston Celtics.

He’s averaging a career best 13.5 points a game.

Smart played two seasons at OSU, from 2012 to 2014 and was a two-time All-American and the U.S. Basketball Writers Association National Freshman of the Year in 2013.
