According to the league agreement, Westbrook will be quarantined upon arrival, and will test negative twice before leaving the room.
Only a week ago, Westbrook announced that he had tested positive for the coronavirus.
If he has been to Orlando, it can be assumed that he feels good.
If the Rockets want to participate in the Western Conference, the Rockets will need Westbrook in the form of MVP.
Although Westbrook started a cold season, especially from the three-point line, he pulled it together before March, with a solid performance of 27.5PPG, 8.0RPG and 7.0APG, and a 52% field goal percentage. .
Coach D’Antoni seemed to be at a stalemate in the small ball lineup, with Westbrook and James Harden leading.
If healthy, the duo may prove that some doubters are wrong when they resume operations next week.
