Milwaukee Bucks guard Pat Connaughton shared a statement on Monday (July 20) that he has tested positive for coronavirus and didn’t travel with the team to Orlando.
“I did not travel with our team after I tested positive for COVID-19. I am healthy and I feel great and I am excited to join my teammates in Orlando once I meet all the NBA protocols.”
Connaughton is the second Bucks player who is known to have tested positive. Eric Bledsoe was the first one and he has reportedly been asymptomatic.
The 27-year-old guard was averaging 5.1 points and 4.2 rebounds in 18.3 minutes over the 61 games he played before the hiatus.
Meanwhile, the NBA announced that zero NBA players out of 346 have tested positive for the coronavirus since their arrival at Orlando.
