ANKARA (AA) - NBA franchise New York Knicks legendary player Patrick Ewing was released from the hospital on Monday after he had tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
"My father is now [at] home and getting better. We'll continue to watch his symptoms and follow the CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] guidelines. I hope everyone continues to stay safe and protect yourselves and your loved ones,'' Ewing's son Patrick Aloysius Ewing said.
Ewing announced earlier on Saturday that he had contracted COVID-19.
Having played 15 years for the Knicks, the 59-year-old former center was known as a Knicks legend.
He has been coaching the Georgetown University men's basketball team, the Georgetown Hoyas, since 2017.
