Brad Stevens said it is "reasonable to assume" Kemba Walker will play limited minutes in the seeding games. Said the team's goal is for him to use the next six weeks to ramp up and strengthen his knee so he will be able to play without any restrictions when the playoffs start.

"We don't have a relationship anymore. He's replaced me with Luka Doncic." That's what Tobias Harris told @TimBontemps (jokingly) about the Bobi & Tobi show earlier this season (or 8000 years ago in 2020 terms) https://t.co/katkpCviyg

Brad Stevens said he had his whole team available for practice, but that they are going to be very cautious with Kemba Walker and slowly build him up. Walker dealt with knee issues in the final weeks before the league shutdown in March.

As the Disney bubble gets set up and tries to hold together, NBA teams are quietly working on another complex problem. How to construct next season with huge virus & money challenges (w/@TimBontemps) https://t.co/mGu6BmKqPi

New ESPN story: Joel Embiid says there “should not be a question” about how the team’s offense should work when the season restarts: through him. “I know what I’m capable of.” https://t.co/URSsTlIrNq

Coach Mike Budenholzer said shutting down the Bucks’ practice facility was “wise” to do. “It’s important we get down there as healthy as possible; and by doing this for a few days before leaving, I feel it’s going to give us our best chance to get to Orlando in a good place.”

Joel Embiid on his concerns about other players not following bubble rules: “I know myself, I know I’m not going to put everybody else at risk. But the question is, ‘Is everybody else going to do the same?’ And I surely, just being around this business, I surely don’t think so.”

Joel Embiid says he knows he's going to do the right things in Orlando, but that he's concerned about other players. Says all he does is play video games.

New ESPN story: Jayson Tatum says players taking part in the upcoming NBA restart with either contract extensions or free agency coming up this fall are "putting a lot on the line." https://t.co/Y7nbobzdIK

Marcus Smart says Jayson Tatum's defensive impact is underrated, and has a chance to be "one of the best players to ever play this game."

Why there’s tension between Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell — before the positive tests and publicly after — and how the Jazz will move forward with franchise cornerstones who aren’t friends. Gobert: “We can win together. That’s the most important thing.” https://t.co/ctVebZzynm

Mike D’Antoni interrupts a question about how he will coach when social distancing is a priority. “Well, that’s how we guard anyway.”

Josh Richardson called playing games in Orlando without fans "The AAU tournament of the century."

New ESPN story: Jaylen Brown initially didn't want to play in the restarted NBA season. But the chance to use the platform to speak about what he cares about led him to change his mind. https://t.co/ws4ksefmVW
