DeMar DeRozan isn't the biggest fan of some of the NBA's health and safety protocols in its quarantine bubble at the Walt Disney World Resort.

In particular, the veteran San Antonio Spurs guard takes issue with the league's requirement to stay six feet apart when not practicing or playing games, which will result in a ban on activities like doubles pingpong.

"The pingpong thing is ridiculous, to be honest," DeRozan said Thursday, according to ESPN's Royce Young.

"Guys can't do this, but we can do this and battle over each other? That part just don't make no sense to me," DeRozan continued. "I got through 10 lines of the handbook and just put it down because it became so frustrating and overwhelming at times because you just never thought you'd be in a situation of something like this. So, it's hard to process at times."

DeRozan, who's opened up about his struggles with mental health in the past, is particularly focused on measures the league will take to ensure its players' well-being as they adapt to a new situation in Orlando.

"It's tough," he said. "You're taking guys that have been with their families every single day for the last few months and all of (a) sudden separating everybody into this one confined space and taking away a lot of joyful things we do outside of basketball.

"It'll be something for every single player when it comes to mental health."
