Westbrook said in a statement on social media that he felt good because he hoped that once infected with the virus, he would join his teammates.
Westbrook said in a statement: “Before my team left Orlando, I tested positive for Covid-19.” “I currently feel good and have been quarantined, and I’m happy to rejoin my teammates after I was cleared. Thank you all for your good wishes and support as always. Please take the virus seriously. Be safe. Please cover up. #whynot”
Westbrook and James Harden had not joined the rest of the Orlando team before the NBA restarted.
The 2019-2020 NBA season will resume on July 31 at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida, and players will remain in a bubble. Due to the pandemic virus pandemic, the season was suspended on March 11.
Many players in the league, including the Rockets’ Thabo Sefolosha, chose to withdraw from the season on the basis of the risk of coronavirus.
