"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.
Thanks for the thoughts & prayers. Feeling great and looking forward to being back with the squad soon... luckily I always have a basketball in my apartment - sorry to the people living below me 🤷🏼♂️🏀😷 #FearTheDeer 🦌— Pat Connaughton (@pconnaughton) July 20, 2020
