The basketball icon added that he also took a coronavirus test yesterday, but is in “limbo” waiting for the results. You can listen to his full comments below.

Obviously, it should go without saying, but I’ll say it anyways just to make sure. We’re all cheering for Chuck to get better.

Charles Barkley isn’t just one of the most entertaining men in all of sports, but he’s also a genuinely good dude.

Hopefully, his test results come back negative. The last thing we need is for a national icon like Charles Barkley to be sick.

It sounds like he’s taken all the precautions with a self-quarantine, and that’s all he can really do after taking the test.

Let’s hope this is nothing more than a cold or something. Get better, Chuck! We’re all cheering for you!
