LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — After his COVID-19 diagnosis caused a delay in travel, Milwaukee Bucks guard Eric Bledsoe has arrived here for the NBA restart.
Last Thursday, Bledsoe told ESPN that he was asymptomatic but “feeling fine.” The team on Wednesday night posted a video of Bledsoe walking through the lobby of the Gran Destino Tower at Disney’s Coronado Springs in Orlando, Florida.

Now that he is here, Bledsoe will have to quarantine for at least two days while he registers two negative coronavirus tests 24 hours apart. He will not be available for the Bucks’ first scrimmage against the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday.
Bledsoe was averaging 15.4 points, 4.6 rebounds and 5.4 assists per game when the season paused in March because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Teammate Pat Connaughton, who was also diagnosed with COVID-19, has said that he expects to join the team as soon as he is able.
