Point guard Ricky Rubio confirmed in a Zoom call on Wednesday that he had the coronavirus before joining the Phoenix Suns in Orlando.

Rubio was one of the few Suns players who did not appear on social media videos during the time the players were in the bubble. His location was unknown to the general public until Tuesday, when New York Times reporter Marc Stein tweeted that Rubio was with the team.

That was Rubio’s first day in practice in the bubble, he said Wednesday.

Rubio received the two negative tests necessary to join the Suns in Orlando.

On Wednesday, center Aron Baynes revealed during an interview with Shams Charania of the stadium that he also tested positive for the coronavirus.

Baynes remains in Phoenix awaiting two negative tests.

Point guard Elie Okobo and guard Jalen Lecque are the other two players who are not in Orlando with the Suns. They are out due to personal issues, head coach Monty Williams said Wednesday.

The Suns will play their first game of three games Thursday against the Utah Jazz at 5:00 p.m. and you can hear the action on ESPN 620 AM. The eight-game bubble slice begins on July 31 against the Washington Wizards, a 1:00 pm announcement that you can also listen to on ESPN 620 AM.
