HOUSTON — Houston Rockets star, Russell Westbrook, has tested positive for COVID-19, according to a tweet he sent Monday morning.

Westbrook said he is feeling fine, but in quarantine.

He said he's looking forward to joining his team when he's cleared, apparently in Orlando, Fla. where the NBA is about to finish its season in a bubble.

The Utah Jazz is in Orlando getting ready for their first game on July 30.

Westbrook urged everyone to take the virus seriously and to mask up. He ended the tweet with the hashtag #whynot?
