97.1 The Ticket -- Pistons center Christian Wood is reportedly feeling fine and "fully recovered" after being one of at least 10 NBA players diagnosed with coronavirus.

Wood tested positive for COVID-19 on March 14, just three days after the league suspended its season amid the coronavirus pandemic. He is the only Pistons player known to have contracted the virus.

His agent said Wednesday that Wood is fully recovered, according to a report from the Detroit Free Press. The report says Wood has to undergo a few more tests before being officially cleared on Thursday.

The Pistons faced the Utah Jazz on March 7 in Detroit, just days before the virus officially hit the NBA. Utah's Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell were the first two players in the league to test positive. The Pistons were required to self-isolate for two weeks in the days following the suspension of the season. Wednesday marks the end of that two-week period.

The World Health Organization says the median recovery time for COVID-19 patients is roughly two weeks for mild cases and 3-6 weeks for severe and critical cases.

State health officials have reported more than 2,300 total cases and 43 deaths due to the virus statewide and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has ordered all Michiganders to "stay home and stay safe" amid the pandemic, in an attempt to stop the spread of the virus.
