Less than three weeks to restart the NBA, one of the great stars of the competition as he is the base of the Houston Rockets Russell Westbrook has announced that it has tested positive for coronavirus and has been quarantined.

«Test positive for COVID-19 before my team’s trip to Orlando, ”said Westbrook on his Twitter account. I’m feeling good I am in quarantine, and I hope to be able to join my colleagues when authorized ».

The 31-year-old, nine-time All-Star point guard hopes to make it in time to play the NBA season finale, which kicks off July 30 at the Disney World sports complex in Orlando.

The Houston Rockets, which occupy the sixth position in the Western Conference, traveled to Orlando last Thursday with the absences of Westbrook and his other great figure, James Harden.
