Former Kentucky Wildcats guard Eric Bledsoe has been diagnosed with COVID-19, according to Yahoo Sports reporter Chris Haynes.

The good news is it doesn’t sound the like the virus is seriously affecting Bledsoe.

“He’s not feeling any symptoms and he really feels good,” Haynes said. “He’s hoping to get here as soon as possible.”

Bledsoe, who is now in his 10th NBA season, did not travel with the Milwaukee Bucks to Orlando for the NBA restart, though he’ll attempt to rejoin the team in a few weeks once he clears COVID-19 testing.

The former Wildcat averaged 15.4 points, 5.4 assists and 4.6 rebounds as the starting point guard for the Bucks, who finished the regular season with a league-best 53-12 record. His team is favored to win the Eastern Conference and make the NBA Finals, though this is obviously a setback that will likely keep Bledsoe sidelined for the restart, which begins July 30th.

Get well soon!
