Like many NBA players, veteran Carmelo Anthony misses playing basketball and wants to get back to action. However, the unusual situation caused by the coronavirus pandemic gives him mixed feelings. Once the season is resumed, the players will have to stay in the bubble at Disney World in Orlando.

While the players will be allowed to leave the bubble, it is unlikely they will. Upon return to the bubble, they will have to quarantine for ten days and will have to have two negative coronavirus tests.

“As far as basketball goes, I’m ready for it and excited to get back to work,” Anthony said during a discussion with Los Angeles Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma. “But to be honest with you, I’m still battling on traveling to Orlando amid everything going on. Just being isolated away from the rest of the world is why I have mixed feelings about the NBA returning.”

This season the 36-year-old veteran is averaging 15.3 points and 6.3 rebounds per game for the Portland Trail Blazers who will be trying to jump into the playoffs once the season resumes.
