LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – The NBA's bubble is still working.
The league released its latest results Wednesday for coronavirus tests performed on players participating in the restarted season at Walt Disney World, and the numbers are still perfect. Of the 343 players tested since results were last announced July 29, none has been confirmed positive.
That means no player has tested positive since entering the bubble last month. There were two players who tested positive on arrival.
"The NBA has done an amazing job, right? They've been great," Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. "They're on us. They're making us wear our masks. … The NBA is doing all the things that we need to do."
San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said players deserve credit for showing self-discipline. "I think it's a great example for the country," he said.
Philadelphia 107, Washington 98: Joel Embiid had 30 points and 11 rebounds, and the 76ers held off the Wizards despite losing two-time All-Star Ben Simmons to a knee injury. There was no immediate word from the 76ers on the extent of the injury.
Oklahoma City 105, L.A. Lakers 86: Chris Paul had 21 points, seven rebounds and six assists in the Thunder's victory over the poor-shooting Lakers. Oklahoma City pulled even with Houston for the fifth seed in the Western Conference with five games remaining.
Denver 132, San Antonio 126: Michael Porter Jr. had 30 points and 15 rebounds, and the Nuggets rallied in the fourth quarter to beat the Spurs.
Utah 124, Memphis 115: Joe Ingles scored 12 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter, and the Jazz kept the Grizzlies winless in the bubble.
Toronto 109, Orlando 99: Fred VanVleet had 21 points and 10 assists and the Raptors beat the Magic.
