Damian Lillard, CJ McCollum and Robert Covington returned to the previously-closed Trail Blazers practice facility on Tuesday. Trail Blazers digital reporter Casey Holdahl delivered the news regarding the trio’s return.

On Sunday, the team announced that it was closing the facility after three positive tests emerged from inside the organization.

This was was the message that the Blazers released to start the week:

“Over the past four days, we have had three positive COVID test results within our organization. Out of an abundance of caution, having completed contact tracing, we are closing our practice facility today for deep cleaning while we run confirmatory tests” -Neil Olshey

The Blazers are currently scheduled to face the Kings on Friday for their preseason opener. Following four preseason games, Portland will host the Utah Jazz to start the regular season.
