JaVale McGee says he’s ‘comfortable’ with playing in Orlando, despite his asthma

McGee said he was not one of the two Lakers who tested positive — their identities remain unknown — and the incident didn’t scare him. He said he has not tried to dramatically change his lifestyle during the pandemic because he was a homebody anyway.

He never had qualms about returning to play in Florida when the NBA resumes the season with games beginning July 30.

“I’m definitely comfortable,” McGee said. “We’ve been away for a while now and we’ve been COVID-free for this long. I definitely think we’ll be OK as long as we take the necessary precautions.”
