Chicago Bulls guard Garrett Temple has been in quarantine since testing positive for COVID-19 on Nov. 28.

The 34-year-old veteran discussed his situation on a call with reporters as his teammates were preparing for their first practice Sunday.


Temple said he began experiencing headaches and fatigue after visiting with family in Louisiana for Thanksgiving.


“I’ve done the contact tracing and I’m pretty sure I know I got it from a family member,” Temple said, per NBC Sports Chicago. .”.. Most of my family did not get it, which is good. My dad, my mom, nobody over 60, nobody with underlying conditions has it, which is great. My wife and my son are both negative, which is great. That’s where we are today.”

Temple, who signed a one-year, $4.7 million deal last month, said he is quarantining in a Chicago hotel and hopes to be cleared for individual workouts on Wednesday.

The Bulls are Temple’s 10th NBA team. He averaged 10.3 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 62 games with the Brooklyn Nets in 2019-20, his 10th season in the league.
