Westbrook confirmed he tested positive for Covid-19 a week ago on July 13. He said he was in good shape and wasn’t showing any symptoms of the virus, so after quarantining for the proper amount of time and testing negative, Westbrook will join the Rockets in the bubble.
Scrimmages are set to begin this week on Wednesday, though the Rockets don’t play their first scrimmage until Friday at 7:30 p.m. ET against the Toronto Raptors. It’s unclear if Westbrook will be ready to play by the end of the week.
