(WXYZ) — Detroit Pistons coach Dwane Casey has exited the NBA's health and safety protocols and will rejoin the team for Tuesday night's game in Chicago.

The team says Casey had two consecutive negative COVID-19 tests and believes the initial test was a false positive.

Casey missed Detroit's win over the Utah Jazz Monday night, which marked acting head coach Rex Kalamian's first win.
