Detroit Pistons big man Christian Wood appears to be fully healthy after he was diagnosed with the coronavirus.

Detroit Pistons' forward Christian Wood's agent Adam Pensack on Wednesday told WXYZ-TV that the 24-year-old Wood is "fully recovered" and is "feeling great" after his diagnosis was announced by the team on March 14. According to the World Health Organization, the average recovery time for mild cases of COVID-19 is about two weeks. For critical or severe cases, it's about three-to-six weeks.

Four nights earlier, the Pistons played the Utah Jazz and Wood had 30 points and 11 rebounds while going up against Utah's Rudy Gobert, who was the first National Basketball Association player to test positive for the coronavirus. He was then the third to test positive for the virus.

Wood and Gobert are among several in the league to have been hit with the coronavirus. He even shared a photo of him sinking a dunk over Gobert during the game on his Instagram.

A cameraman who filmed inside the Utah Jazz locker room during their March 7 game in Detroit is reportedly in a medically induced coma after testing positive for the coronavirus. Gobert's teammate Donovan Mitchell tested positive along with four Brooklyn Nets players, including Kevin Durant.
