More new COVID-19 cases around league
The NBA announced earlier Thursday nine new positive COVID-19 cases among players. After announcing 16 positive tests last week, the league has a total of 25 new confirmed COVID-19 cases among players since league-organized testing began on June 23.
No players have self-identified since the NBA announced the new cases on Thursday.
NBA play is scheduled to resume on July 30 with 22 teams invited to play in the bubble league. After eight regular season games, the 16 teams that qualify for the playoffs will continue with the postseason across three different courts at the Disney World complex.
The Clippers will travel to Florida with a 44-20 record, good for second place in the Western Conference, 5.5 games behind the first-place Los Angeles Lakers. Head coach Doc Rivers said on Wednesday that he expects everyone on the roster to participate in the bubble league.
