Effects of COVID-19 on Previously Infected NBA Players 

Post#1 » by Fencer reregistered » Mon May 3, 2021 8:42 pm

Among Celtics who caught COVID-19:

-- Jayson Tatum is stil taking an inhaler before games.
-- Evan Fournier says he's mentally slow, and struggles with his depth perception.
-- Tristan Thompson, Robert Williams, Romeo Langford and Marcus Smart, to my knowledge, say none of that stuff.

What do your guys report?

I actually second what Fournier is going through. I felt mentally groggy for a month or so after testing positive. People aren't taking into consideration what Covid is doing to these guys. Yes, they'll live but it hurts them to perform at a high level.

As for the Raptors, Siakam lost 15 pounds and you can noticeably see how much skinner he got. Fred said he's still struggling with his cardio too.

There are clearly long Covid effects. These are well documented.

Even minor long Covid impacts will be magnified in elite sportspeople.

Different players will have been impacted in different ways and will differ in public discussion as such.

Maxi Kleber most certainly struggled.

Cavaliers players have missed games due to the protocol, but I don't believe there have been any reported (or obvious) positive cases.

Hopefully they recover like the other 99.97%.

It already has a name and it's not "Long Covid."

"But sometimes it can linger for weeks or months after you’ve been sick with a viral infection, such as the flu. This is known as post-viral fatigue."

"Other symptoms that can accompany post-viral fatigue include:

concentration or memory problems
sore throat
headache
swollen lymph nodes
unexplained muscle or joint pain"

The subject of this thread is the lingering effects of COVID-19, if any, on those who do not die, specifically in the case of NBA players. (But digressions about the effects on other people are likely relevant too.)

Just as COVID-19's symptoms tend to differ from those of many other viruses, so does its pattern of post-infection effects.

There is this lungs burning feeling when I had COVID. Perhaps I'm describing wrong, every time I blow my nose, it felt like my lungs were filled with pool waters. It was a weird feeling and it didn't go away until 3 weeks later.

And yet the predominance of symptoms fits Post-Viral Fatigue Syndrome very well. This list was far from exhaustive.

That's called pneumonia. You should get that checked out.

I tried to frame it in a way so that all except the worst trolls could be shrugged off.

So far, so good.

I had Covid and not comparing my self to an athlete or anyone else since I think it can all differ dramatically for everyone, but 2 months after having the virus i still have more fatigue, headaches and occasionally muscle and joint pain, the first month after I had some brain fog and blurred vision but most of that has subsided .. so yes some of these guys are having affects after the fact, I am sure

You have, and it's appreciated. I initially locked the thread but decided to give it a chance because of how you framed the discussion in your OP and effort to keep the discussion on track.

Maybe update the title to add NBA players in it? Figure that should help avoid trolls not even reading the OP and commenting.
