Montrezl Harrell is still tending his private matter that led to him to leave the campus last week. The Los Angeles Clippers’ center is not expected to make it to the Orlando in time for the season opener against the Lakers, according to Yahoo Sports’ Chris Haynes.

According to Haynes, Harrell has “tested negative for COVID-19 each day he’s been away”, but it’s not clear when the Sixth Man of the Year candidate will re-join his team.

When he arrives, he still needs to stay in quarantine for two days, before starting any basketball activity. Harrell is averaging 18.6 points and 7.1 rebounds being one of the top bench players in the league.
