Dolan is showing “little to no symptoms,” the Knicks said. According to the New York Post’s Marc Berman, he was holed up in the Hamptons self-isolating with family.
The NHL has had four positive cases among players, two from the Ottawa Senators and two from the Colorado Avalanche. All of the players have remained anonymous to the public.
The 2019-20 NHL season has been on pause since March 12, a day after the NBA season was suspended. Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert tested positive for the virus the day the NBA suspended play, causing the league to take such action.
