The Milwaukee Bucks will need every one of their core players to confirm the odds of being one of the favorites to win the NBA title in Orlando.

Eric Bledsoe has arrived in Florida to join his teammates, just a week before the official restart of the NBA season on July 30.

The Bucks’ starting guard has tested positive for the coronavirus, as Chris Haynes reported last week, but now he is ready to return on the court.

Bledsoe will have to pass the league’s two-day quarantine protocol, before participating in any basketball activity.

The veteran point guard has averaged 15.4 points, 5.4 assists and 4.8 rebounds through March, helping the Milwaukee Bucks establish their place as the top team in the East.
