Barnes, 28, announced on Tuesday on Twitter that he tested positive before the team left for Florida last week.

"I've been primarily asymptomatic and am doing well," he wrote. "I'm quarantined and am abiding by the safety protocol until I'm cleared for action. I hope to join my team in Orlando when it is safe to do so! Stay safe out there."

Barnes averaged 14.7 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 64 games (all starts) before the NBA season was paused in March due to the coronavirus pandemic.
