Los Angels Lakers guard Danny Green was scheduled to appear on ESPN‘s First Take on Friday morning, according to Heavy’s Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson.

Earlier today it was reported by The Athletic’s Shams Charania that according to sources two Lakers players have tested positive for the coronavirus.

Per Fox News, “All players and members of the Lakers staff are being asked to continue to observe self-quarantine and shelter at home guidelines, closely monitor their health, consult with their personal physicians and maintain constant communication with the team,” the statement read.

Robinson also reported recently that the Laker guard has now canceled his appearance on First Take.

Some are speculating it might have to do with the news that Charania reported two players have tested positive for the coronavirus, and Green would probably have to field questions pertaining to his teammates in question.

Robinson has spoken with Green on various occasions throughout the season with the latest being earlier this month when the two discussed the Los Angeles Lakers plan to stop Kawhi Leonard and the Los Angeles Clippers.

Danny Green Details Plan to Defend Kawhi Leonard and the Clippers

Earlier this month Green shared how they plan to defend the 2019 Finals MVP.

“We all know his strengths,” Lakers guard, Danny Green, Leonard’s former Raptors teammate told Robinson.

“We all know what he can do. Try to limit him as much as possible to not let him get to his spots and get comfortable in his rhythm. Do that and offensively make him work, put him in some screen-and-rolls out on the floor, space and have some good movement.”

The Los Angeles Lakers would go on to beat the Los Angeles Clippers 112-103. After the game Lakers coach Frank Vogel shared with the media that he thought that James played ‘unbelievable.

“LeBron was unbelievable,” Lakers coach Frank Vogel said. “This was his best weekend in a Lakers uniform. He really dominated both games and helped close them out.”‘

The King would finish with 28 points, 9 assists, and 7 rebounds, as the Lakers were able to beat the Clippers for the first time this season.

“I prepare myself both in my body and my mind and to endure anything, even at this stage in my career,” James said. “I know what it takes for me to prepare mentally and physically and go out and perform on a high level, and it’s my responsibility to put this team in a position to be successful. They look at me as a leader. It’s my job not only on the floor to give guys opportunities, get them great looks, but inspire them as well and show them I’m not slowing down, even at this stage in my career.”

Also, after the game, Los Angeles Lakers’ Super-fan Snoop Dogg serenades the basketball community to the theme song of Power.

“They say this is a Lakers town and some of Y’all from the Clipper part. No rings, no Ships, Y’all never make it. This is where it goes down. Lake Show F**** Y’all N*** up today. Sunday good, Monday… B*** Lakers did that,” Snoop. “Bron Bron  ‘The King’ shout that Clipper S*** up I don’t want to hear that S*** no more N****. Yeah, the game doesn’t matter, yeah, it doesn’t matter. We the number one seed f*** out of here Marcellus Wiley, F*** out of here Clipper Darrell. F*** out of here.”
