Houston Rockets forward Bruno Caboclo inadvertently broke quarantine and must quarantine in his room for another eight days before resuming team activities.
Caboclo is two days into the 10 day-quarantine he will now need and will also be subject to extra testing, according to Jonathan Feigen of The Houston Chronicle.
Caboclo reportedly left his room during the initial quarantine period, a source told ESPN’s Tim MacMahon.
He was unaware that he was not allowed to do so despite the league informing all players and staff of the protocol in Orlando.
“He should’ve known,” a source told MacMahon. “It was no secret.”
Caboclo only played five games for the Rockets this season after he was dealt to them by the Memphis Grizzlies at the trade deadline.
The NBA is requiring players, coaches and staff members to strictly follow the protocols put in place to prevent a coronavirus outbreak that would possibly ruin the restart.
