MSG chairman James Dolan tests positive for coronavirus

Madison Square Garden chairman James Dolan has tested positive for the coronavirus “with little to no symptoms”, the Knicks announced on its Twitter account Saturday night.

According to a source, Dolan is self-isolating with his family in the Hamptons and his test came back earlier this week. The Knicks said he “continues to oversee business operations.”

Dolan is 64 years old.

Earlier in the day, Dolan had reached agreement to pay his arena workers in his many venues through at least May 3 while establishing a $2.3 million relief fund for them.

Dolan has been in the headlines a lot in the last month — creating ire among the fan base for a recent feud with Spike Lee. Things had gone so awry with the fan base that the Garden chanted “Sell The Team” on a couple of occasions earlier this month.
