Houston Rockets star point guard Russell Westbrook said Monday that he tested positive for COVID-19.

Westbrook, James Harden, and Luc Mbah a Moute notably missed the team's first practice as they hadn't yet arrived in the Orlando bubble.

Rockets head coach Mike D'Antoni said Saturday that he expected the star duo to arrive within a few days, according to ESPN's Tim MacMahon.

The 31-year-old has been highly productive during his first season in Houston, averaging 27.5 points, eight rebounds, and seven assists in 53 starts.

Westbrook joins a growing list of NBA stars who have tested positive for COVID-19, including Nikola Jokic of the Denver Nuggets, Utah Jazz All-Star duo Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell, Indiana Pacers guard Malcolm Brogdon, and Brooklyn Nets floor general Spencer Dinwiddie.

The Rockets enter the NBA return sitting sixth in the Western Conference with a 40-24 record. Houston plays the first of its eight seeding games against the Dallas Mavericks on July 31.
