Milwaukee guard Eric Bledsoe tested positive for Covid-19 in the NBA’s initial testing for the virus as the league prepared for the restart of its season. After a few weeks of quarantine and becoming medically cleared to go to the Orlando bubble, the former UK guard arrived Wednesday night at the Bucks team hotel.
Here is a tweet from the Milwaukee Bucks announcing the return of Bledsoe:

The point guard for the Bucks will have to follow the 36-48 hour quarantine rule set by the league for arriving players before participating in team activities. The rule means Bledsoe will be absent when Milwaukee begins exhibition play in the bubble today at 3 p.m. eastern time against San Antonio, but will be cleared to return when the team takes on Boston in its first regular season restart game on July 31.
