The Japan Basketball Association said Sunday that a men's national team training camp has been suspended after a player tested positive for the coronavirus.
The week-long camp at Tokyo's National Training Center had been slated to be held through Thursday before the B-League's Chiba Jets revealed late Saturday that two of its players contracted the virus, one of whom was in camp with the national team.
Every player participating in the camp underwent polymerase chain reaction testing last Monday ahead of the camp's start and were all found to be negative.
Three Chiba Jets players -- former B-League MVP Yuki Togashi, Gavin Edwards and Takuma Sato -- were participating in the national team camp.
The association announced last week that members of the national squad would convene for a training camp after two 2021 FIBA Asia Cup qualifying games scheduled to be held later this month were postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Japan had been scheduled to face Group B opponents Malaysia on Friday and China the following Sunday.
Nineteen players were participating in the camp, including Kawasaki Brave Thunders point guard Ryusei Shinoyama, captain of the national team at last year's FIBA Basketball World Cup, and Alvark Tokyo shooting guard Daiki Tanaka, the B-League MVP last season.
Neither of Japan's NBA-based players, Rui Hachimura and Yuta Watanabe, were with the team.
