The Spanish base recognized that he was infected and that it will take a little longer to return to play.
The day the friendlies returned to the NBA, the basis of Phoenix Suns, Ricky Rubio, gave a virtual press conference on the Disney bubble in which he announced that he had tested positive for coronavirus.
“I’ve been gone for three or four weeks. I’m fine, I don’t have symptoms. Your arms and legs notice it. I have to work, I have to give my best to the team … and, at the same time, think about my health. It’s difficult say because I have been away for a while: I will do 3-4 workouts before playing. I have to go day by day and see how I feel, “said the Spaniard.
The veteran playmaker will not be available for the Suns’ return to their former team, Utah, in the friendly match they will have on Thursday 23 at the HP Center. Kelly Oubre Jr. will not be available due to injury.
The Spanish base is already recovered and training but it is not the same situation as Aaron Baynes, who is still in Phoenix facing the disease. However, he expressed in recent days that he is beginning to feel better.
