Former NBA player Cedric Ceballos, who played for the Dallas Mavericks from 1998 to 2000, said in a tweet Monday he is COVID-19 free but still has bad lingering symptoms.

Ceballos, 52, explained in the tweet that he can’t breathe, walk or “function on my own yet.”

Last week, Ceballos revealed he was battling COVID-19 while in a hospital’s intensive care unit. He said he had been in the ICU for 10 days at the time of his tweet, which showed him wearing an oxygen mask.

In Monday morning’s tweet, he was pictured outside without any healthcare equipment.

“I am COVID-19 free, thank you so very much for your prayers and well wishes to help me with that,” he said. “I still CAN NOT breathe, walk or function on my own yet.”
