NBA Season Restart 2019-20

Eric Bledsoe practices with Bucks

Point guard Eric Bledsoe was as practice with the Bucks for the first time since the team began its season restart quest.

The Bucks left for Florida at less than full strength as he and reserve guard Pat Connaughton both reportedly tested positive for the coronavirus. The team tweeted out a video on Wednesday night indicating Bledsoe had arrived on the NBA campus and he went through practice on Friday.

Bledsoe told reporters on Friday he hadn’t been able to work out at all after testing positive for Covid-19 until Thursday. He rode an exercise bike while in quarantine during the Bucks’ scrimmage game against the San Antonio Spurs, which Milwaukee won 113-92.

He also told reporters he didn’t feel much in terms of symptoms of coronavirus. Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer said Bledsoe “looked great” in practice but would not say whether or not he will play Bledsoe in Saturday’s scrimmage against the Sacramento Kings (12:30 p.m. ET, League Pass).

This season, Bledsoe is averaging 15.4 points, 5.4 assists and 4.6 rebounds.
