The Milwaukee Bucks have shut down the team’s practice facility.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the team made the decision to lock up the practice facility “after receiving results of a Friday round of coronavirus testing.” (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

It’s not known how many positive tests there were for the Bucks, but however many there were, it was enough for management to shut the doors.

This is the last thing the NBA needs right now. The last thing the NBA needs is another team shutting its doors ahead of the games starting back up in Orlando at Disney at the end of July.

The Nuggets did the exact same thing last week.

The NBA has a bubble system in place down in Orlando for the games to start back up amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, but it looks like there’s a serious chance it gets derailed.

Games aren’t scheduled to happen for a few more weeks, and we already have teams closing up shop because of test results.

That’s not a great look for what could happen in Orlando if the virus hits a team’s locker room.

We’ll see what happens, but the NBA might have several problems if more and more teams shut down facilities ahead of games starting.
