Oklahoma City Guard, Dennis Schroder announced that his wife is expecting a child, and will supposedly be born the first couple of weeks of August. Therefore, the German player plans to leave the NBA campus for three to four weeks.
Schroder must quarantine for four days upon returning to the Orlando campus as long as he tests negative for the coronavirus each day they were off campus.
“For me it’s tough,” Schroder said. “I love my teammates, I love basketball, but family comes first all the time. I’ll try to make something happen with the organization.
