Report: Bucks Shut Down Practice Facility Following Results of COVID-19 Test

New, comments

The team won’t reopen facilities before leaving Thursday for Orlando

NBA: Boston Celtics at Milwaukee Bucks Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

As has unfortunately been all too common across the NBA, Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Milwaukee Bucks have shut down their practice facilities following tests for COVID-19 last Friday.

As Woj notes, the only impact we know as of now is that players won’t have access to the facilities before they leave for the Orlando bubble come Thursday. Beyond that though, there is no further information as to who might’ve prompted the Bucks to shut down their practice arena. Additionally, unlike Woj’s tweet reporting the Los Angeles Clippers shutting down their facilities, he doesn’t outright say someone tested positive.

That is obviously a safe assumption, but for now, all we know is that Milwaukee will miss out on a few additional practice days. If anyone prominent is infected, first and foremost let’s hope they can recover and everyone in their own lives is safe and healthy. From a basketball standpoint, games are still several weeks away so it’s likely any affected player could still suit up. Regardless, I expect this is just the first of potentially many distressing stories to come.

We will continue to update this story if any further information becomes available.
