You can read the full statement below.

This is obviously a great update for fans of Ewing, Georgetown basketball and the NBA. Ewing had announced Friday that he had the virus and was in the hospital recovering.

While he said he was going to be “fine,” things are always scary whenever you end up hospitalized.

Now, he’s back at home recovering, and it sounds like he’s doing much better than he was a few days ago. This virus isn’t a joke at all.

If you haven’t figured out that much by now, then you’re just not paying attention.

Keep getting better, coach! The entire world of college basketball is pulling for him! We need him back on the sidelines and ready to roll for the upcoming season.
