Richaun Holmes Quarantined After Breaking Bubble to Get Takeaway
The NBA restart is just on the horizon but it appears that the instructions handed to those within the NBA ‘bubble’ that has been set-up at the Disney World facility where all 22 teams are staying were too much for some players to follow.
26-year-old Sacramento Kings forward Richaun Holmes elected to leave the Disney World base to pick up some takeaway food.
The remainder of the current NBA season will see 22 teams play all matches in the Disney World resort in Orlando and in order to make the situation as safe as possible, and to avoid a series of coronavirus infections among the players, staff and their families, strict guidance was handed to those within the ‘bubble’ that surrounds the area.
Holmes took to Twitter to make a statement on the situation, stating:
“I am currently in quarantine and have eight days left. I apologise for my actions and look forward to rejoining my team-mates for our play-off push.”
Holmes wasn’t the only player to ignore the restrictions though, Houston Rockets star Bruno Cabocia also broke the rules and has been instructed to not leave his hotel room.
The 22 teams who are part of the truncated end of season action, 13 of which are from the Western Conference and nine from the Eastern, came to Orlando to start the training process to get players back up to speed following the suspension of NBA action way back on March 11th.
All remaining matches will take place at the resort’s 5,000 stadium, though no spectators will be present. However no doubt millions will be watching eagerly from home and as a result a welcome return to NBA betting action is nearly with us.
