Orlando Magic guard Markelle Fultz has arrived at the NBA “bubble” at Disney and has begun his quarantine, according to Josh Robbins of The Athletic.

Fultz did not travel with the team to Disney on July 7 in order to attend to a personal, non-COVID matter.

Once he tests negative twice, clears quarantine and passes a conditioning test, he’ll be able to resume basketball activities with the team.

On a Zoom call with reporters, Magic forward James Ennis revealed that he was the unnamed player who tested positive for coronavirus, according to Robbins.

Ennis reportedly originally had a headache for four-to-five days and some nausea.

He completed his quarantine, is now feeling well and practiced with the Magic on July 15 for the first time in the “bubble.”

“I’m just trying to get my wind up and my legs back under me and just get in rhythm, because our first scrimmage is next week,” Ennis said. “I want to be prepared for that.”

The Magic are currently in the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, as they are 5.5 games ahead of the Washington Wizards and a half-game behind the depleted Brooklyn Nets.
