Bucks latest to shut practice facility, sources say

After receiving the results of a Friday round of testing for the coronavirus, the Milwaukee Bucks shut down the team’s practice facility, sources told ESPN.

It was not immediately clear if there was more than one positive test, but the Bucks plan to keep the facility closed for workouts until the team’s traveling party departs for the league’s restart in Orlando, Florida, on Thursday, sources said.

The Bucks are one of several teams that have shut down facilities for workouts in the past week, including the Denver Nuggets, Miami Heat, LA Clippers and Brooklyn Nets.

Per the league’s health and safety guidelines, any player who contracts the coronavirus must quarantine and test negative twice before being medically cleared to make the trip to Orlando.

The Bucks have the NBA’s best record at 53-12 heading into the July 30 restart at Walt Disney World.
