The news was released Sunday, July 5.
I can confirm the @wojespn report that the #Bucks shut down their practice facility after a round of COVID-19 testing. They are not expected to reopen before leaving for Orlando Thursday.— Scott Grodsky (@ScottGrodsky) July 5, 2020
ESPN reported the Bucks made the decision to close the training facility after receiving the results to Friday's round of COVID-19 testing.
At this point, we do not know who or how many people have tested positive for the virus within the organization.
The Bucks are set to leave for Orlando on Thursday, July 9 and will not reopen the building for practice before then.
The facility received little action over the last few months. Like many teams in the association, they reopened their doors to players in mid-May and not even two months later, they had to shut it back down.
This is not the way the best team in the NBA anticipated making its return. For now, it's full steam ahead as 22 teams pack their bags for Florida.
