Devin Booker Tests Positive for COVID-19, Declines to Share If He's Been Vaccinated

The NBA star says he's lost his sense of taste and smell.

Devin Booker has tested positive for COVID-19. The 24-year-old Phoenix Suns player shared the news on his Twitch livestream over the weekend. 

"Honestly, y'all, I'm feeling straight. The only thing I'm dealing with is no taste, no smell, which is the worst part of it," Booker shared of his symptoms. "I'm about a week in. I'mma be back in no time, no time."

He went on to describe how the symptoms have impacted him, saying, "Having no smell, no taste, it makes your day dry. It makes your day gray. It makes it gray, for real."

The NBA athlete opted not to share whether he has been vaccinated.

"I'm not gonna tell you guys if I have the vaccine or not, but you could still get COVID with the vaccine, for anybody that's saying that. Educate yourself," he said. 

Due to his diagnosis, Booker will be unable to attend the Suns training camp, which is starting this week. The team's first preseason game is set for Oct. 4 against the Sacramento Kings. It is unknown if he will be able to play. 

Booker is currently dating Kendall Jenner, who has not publicly commented on her boyfriend's coronavirus diagnosis. ET has reached out to the model to see if she has been tested for COVID-19. 

Jenner did attend the 2021 Met Gala earlier this month, where the COVID-19 vaccination was a requirement for guests.
