Harden and Westbrook, who are yet to join the team in the Orlando bubble, have contracted the virus and will be in self-quarantine. In a personal statement through his official Twitter account, Westbrook said that he tested positive for COVID-19 before the team traveled to Orlando.

In a separate report that is yet to be confirmed by the Rockets, the Elite Media Group tweeted out that Harden has also contracted the virus. It is a similar case as to Westbrook’s, as Harden also found out the results of the test before he could join the Rockets’ departure for Orlando last week.

This has been a rocky start for Houston as they prepare for the season restart. The NBA recently announced that they will be requiring Rockets forward Bruno Caboclo to be in self-quarantine for eight days after violating the rules in the bubble. It’s not sure if he also tested positive for the virus, but this is a precaution that the league has to take to avoid an outbreak in the campus.
