The man is suffering from the coronavirus, Yahoo Sports reported that his friends said.
The game the cameraman worked was played just four days before the NBA's season closure. He is reported to be in his 50s and has worked for years as part of broadcast crews for NBA games at Little Caesars Arena, according to friends unidentified to respect the privacy of the man who is hospitalized.
Yahoo Sports stated in its article on Wednesday that it is unknown where, when or how the cameraman contracted the coronavirus.
However, his friend told the online outlet that he began feeling sick about a week after the game. When home remedies didn’t work, he reported to a suburban area hospital on March 18, the article stated.
