Jaden Ivey will not play on Saturday as the Detroit Pistons host the Indiana Pacers after the rookie was placed into the NBA’s health and safety protocol, the team announced.

Ivey last played with the Pistons on Thursday in a loss to the Charlotte Hornets, recording 16 points, six assists, three rebounds and two blocked shots. It was his 27th straight game scoring in double figures, the longest streak by a rookie this season.

The fifth pick will now miss at least one game in the health and safety protocol. He will need to return two consecutive negative coronavirus tests at least 24 hours apart before gaining clearance to play again.

Ivey is averaging 15.4 points, 4.9 assists and 3.9 rebounds on 41.5% shooting from the field in 62 games this season. He ranks third in scoring and first in assists among all rookies and is one of nine first-year players with at least one 30-point game.
