“That’s why we were so mystified when it leaked out,” Casey told ESPN’s Jackie MacMullan. “Christian was upset his name got out there. He didn’t release it. And the worst part was it got out before Christian even had a chance to tell his mom.

“I was very unhappy about that,” he continued. “I told our staff, ‘This is unprofessional. This can’t happen again.’ It was so unfair to our player.”

“He’s a young guy, living alone, so we wanted to stay engaged with him,” Casey said. “From what I can tell, he spent most of his time playing video games.”

Wood has now fully recovered from the virus, his agent said Wednesday.

He has reportedly also since received a negative test result. No other Pistons player tested positive.
