The Milwaukee Bucks per ESPN and the Sacramento Kings per The Athletic shut down their practice facilities on Monday. This past week, the Denver Nuggets, Miami Heat, Los Angeles Clippers, Phoenix Suns and Brooklyn Nets were forced to the same course of action due to one or more positive coronavirus tests.

The above teams, including the top-ranked Bucks, do not plan to reopen their facilities for workouts prior to traveling to Orlando for the tournament planned by the NBA to resume and conclude the 2019-20 season.

The player or the players added to those testing positive are not yet known. However, any player contracting coronavirus must quarantine and test negative twice before being cleared to make the trip to Orlando, according to the health and safety guidelines implemented by the NBA.

Fifteen more teams, a total of 22, are scheduled for scrimmages and eight additional regular-season games upon traveling to Orlando. The official restart is set for July 30. Sixteen teams, the top 8 from each conference, will advance to the playoffs.
