The Bucks and Kings have closed their facilities following the results of a recent series of coronavirus tests. Milwaukee and Sacramento join a list four other teams that have shut down practices in the last week. The Nuggets, Heat, Clippers and Nets have all closed their facilities in the ramp up to the NBA’s Orlando-based restart.
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski delivered the news on the closure of the Bucks’ facilities.
