SportsPulse: USA TODAY Sports' Jeff Zillgitt examines the latest example of the NBA being a league that encourages its players and coaches to speak up and use their platform, this time in the aftermath of the riots at the Capitol building.

Philadelphia 76ers guard Seth Curry has reportedly tested positive for COVID-19, leading to the team altering its travel plans to commence contact tracing.

According to multiple reports, the Sixers were made aware of Curry's positive test early in Thursday's game against the Nets in Brooklyn .

Curry did not play due to an ankle injury, but he sat in the bench area for a portion of the first quarter.

Curry wore a mask during his time on the Sixers bench Thursday and was seen sitting near Joel Embiid at one point.

Embiid, who has a 3-month-old son, later told ESPN that he plans to quarantine away from his family while the team conducts contact tracing.
