With just over a week until the NBA season resumes, Shams Charania shared some good news regarding the efficacy of the bubble thus far:
Sources: Zero NBA players tested positive for coronavirus out of 346 tested at Orlando campus since last results were announced July 13.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) July 20, 2020
There are no guarantees that the bubble will be completely effective, but this is good news. While there have multiple NBA players that have tested positive, these have all taken place outside of Disney World. Should players need to leave (Zion Williamson) or become exposed to the outside of the bubble (Richaun Holmes), they are subject to additional quarantine time before being able to rejoin their teammates.
Sean Highkin of Bleacher Report wrote a piece last week about why coaches and players are confident that things are working as intended.
