DETROITDetroit Pistons rookie Cade Cunningham has entered the NBA’s COVID health and safety protocols, according to a report.

Shams Charania, of The Athletic, reported the news Wednesday evening.

Cunningham is the first Pistons player to enter the COVID health and safety protocols, but the league has been dealing with outbreaks across several other teams.

After being the No. 1 overall pick in this year’s draft, Cunningham is averaging 15.3 points, 6.2 rebounds and 5.2 assists per game. That hasn’t translated to wins, however, as the Pistons are just 5-25 on the season.
