Rockets’ Westbrook has virus, as NBA bubble faces first test
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — Houston’s Russell Westbrook has tested positive for the coronavirus. Despite that setback involving a high-profile player, there is optimism that the NBA’s strict health protocols for its restart are working so far. It was also announced Monday that two players tested positive for the virus after arriving in Central Florida last week. But neither of those positive players ever made it out of quarantine, so neither entered the so-called bubble and could mingle freely with other players, coaches and staff. At least two players have been disciplined for violating quarantine upon their teams’ respective arrivals last week.
