MANILA, Philippines — After several speculations, James Harden finally arrived in Orlando Wednesday for the NBA restart.

Harden, along with Russell Westbrook and Luc Mbah Moute, did not travel with the Houston Rockets to Florida and missed the team’s first practice earlier this week.


The superstar guard, however, is not yet allowed to join the Rockets, as per Marc Stein of The New York Times.

“James Harden has arrived at Walt Disney World tonight and will have to isolate and register three consecutive negative tests for COVID-19 before he is cleared to join the Rockets,” Stein tweeted.


It’s still unclear when Westbrook can join the Rockets in the bubble after announcing Tuesday that he has tested positive for COVID-19.

The Rockets picked up Mbah a Moute, a free-agent forward, last week.

He is making his second stint for Houston after playing for the team during the 2017-18 season.
