Some good news: Charles Barkley does not have COVID-19. 

"I've received my COVID-19 test results this morning and they are negative," Barkley said in a statement released by Turner Sports on Monday. "I'd like to thank everyone for reaching out and expressing your concern and support. You all be safe and please take the necessary actions to help ensure your well-being."

The 57-year-old former Sixers all-star and NBA Hall Of Famer turned analyst was feeling ill and self-isolated himself last week. 

Several NBA players have tested positive for COVID-19 like Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell, as well as three unnamed people in the 76ers' organization. 

With the NBA and all sports leagues on pause due to the coronavirus, it's nice to get some good news regarding someone in the sports world.
