Thunder guard and sixth-man, Dennis Schröder, has returned to the NBA bubble. Schröder left the bubble on Monday because his wife was delivering their second child and Dennis desired to be there with his wife.
Schröder will serve a four-day quarantine before he will he allowed to use the bubble’s facilities and more importantly to play in games. Originally, there was some concern that Schröder would miss some playoff games, but that will not be the case since the quarantine ends just in time for the start of the playoffs.
Along with Schröder, the Thunder have missed a vast amount of their players over the six games they have played. Without Schröder and the other players, the Thunder bench has not been as explosive aside from Darius Bazley who has shined in Schröder’s absence scoring 23 and 22 points over the past two games respectively and collected his first double-double.
