NBA opens probe after Jeremy Lin says he was called 'coronavirus'

The National Basketball Association (NBA)'s developmental G League has launched an investigation after Jeremy Lin said he was called "coronavirus" during a game. 

In a Facebook post on Friday, Lin talked out about the racism he believes the Asian American community continues to deal with.

"Being an Asian American doesn't mean we don't experience poverty and racism. Being a nine-year NBA veteran doesn't protect me from being called 'coronavirus' on the court," Lin said.
