Dallas Mavericks' Kristaps Porzingis gets 1-day quarantine for missing test

The NBA is handing down one-day quarantines to players who forget to go to their designated locations for the daily coronavirus test, with Dallas' Kristaps Porzingis the latest to get that penalty.

Porzingis missed Dallas' scrimmage on Sunday because of his forgetfulness.

"He didn't get tested; just forgot to get tested. [So] when that happens, for safety reasons, he's unable to join the team the following day," Mavs coach Rick Carlisle said in a statement. "He's getting re-tested today and I believe he'll be able to re-join us tomorrow."

Denver's Paul Millsap had to sit out the Nuggets' scrimmage Saturday for the same reason.
