Unvaccinated players will be under a more rigid schedule this week. They’ll have to endure an extra PCR test each day. And unlike vaccinated players, they’ll have to enter a seven-day quarantine if they are ruled to be a close contact of an infected individual. Vaccinated players who return a positive or inconclusive test could be cleared to fully participate in the combine again in fewer than 24 hours; unvaccinated players may have to wait up to 48 hours — vital time when trying to make an impression on NBA decision-makers. Unvaccinated players also will have to wear face masks at all times other than when they’re on the court, in their hotel rooms, or eating and drinking.

Kellan Olson: Ayton was asked if he is happy here and he said “Yeah, I’m alright. When I’m inbetween those lines now I just work. I’m not playing for myself. I have an organization across my chest and a name on my back I have to represent. I’m just here to work, man.”
Darnell Mayberry: Andre Drummond on why he signed with the Bulls: “It felt like the right fit. This is a team that’s very young, hungry and in a great position to do something special. I want to be a part of that.”
Dane Moore: Karl-Anthony Towns did not participate in the first day of Timberwolves training camp today because he’s still dealing with an illness, according to Chris Finch. Finch said he hopes to have Towns in camp by the end of the week.
