MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee Bucks guard Pat Connaughton has tested positive for COVID-19, according to ESPN NBA reporter Malika Andrews.

Andrews said on Twitter that Connaughton was not currently with the Bucks in the Orlando 'bubble' due to the diagnosis.

"I did not travel with our team after I tested positive for COVID-19," Connaughton said in a statement released to ESPN and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "I am healthy and I feel great and I am excited to join my teammates in Orlando once I meet all the NBA protocols."

Connaughton is now the second Milwaukee Bucks player to test positive for COVID-19. Eric Bledsoe announced his diagnosis late last week.
