MANILA, Philippines — The NBA isn’t messing around with its strict rules inside the bubble.

Sacramento Kings center Richaun Holmes experienced it first hand on Tuesday.


Holmes was forced to return into quarantine after he “accidentally” crossed the NBA’s campus line at Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida to pick up a food delivery.

“After the initial quarantine period, I briefly and accidentally crossed the NBA campus line to pick up a food delivery,” Holmes said in a statement.


“I am currently in quarantine and have eight days left. I apologize for my actions and look forward to rejoining my teammates for our playoff push.”

The 26-year-old Holmes also didn’t escape from his mom’s ribbing on social media.


“You only cross the line for your MOMA’s COOKING! AND I WAS NOT IN FLORIDA SIR!! #lol @Rich_Holmes22. Love you baby!” Lydecia Holmes wrote on Twitter.

Players who leave the bubble at any given time reportedly must undergo a 10-day quarantine inside their respective hotel rooms.

Apart from Holmes, Houston Rockets forward Bruno Caboclo also unintentionally left the bubble.
