The Toronto Raptors are still in self-isolation and the NBA season is suspended as the cases of COVID-19 continue to grow in North America. While test results have come back negative for the team, the players are now doing their best to stay entertained during these times. For Serge Ibaka, this includes sharing his workout routine with his fans.
On Sunday, a post from the Toronto Raptors’ Twitter page featured a new segment which is titled How Bored Are You? The segment, which is a clever play of Ibaka’s original series How Hungry Are You? is documenting the player’s life during his 14-day self-isolation.
The player starts off the video by stating, “Hey guys, I have a first workout today at home and I did a full-body workout … I’m just trying to stay in shape and I hope you do the same.”
The Raptors superstar then showcases a few of his workout moves in his living room, including pushups and squats.
This is already episode two in the new segment by Ibaka. On Saturday, the player also took to social media to talk about his experience in self-isolation.
“What’s up, guys? As you know I have to be home for 14-days… In the meantime, I’m just going to stay in shape,” Ibaka reveals.
However, Ibaka isn’t the only player staying home. Last week, all players were told to go into self-isolation after it was discovered that a Utah Jazz player tested positive for COVID-19.
While all players were tested for the virus, on March 14, a statement from the Raptors revealed that all the tests have come back negative.
Yet, those who are currently in self-isolation would continue to do so until the 14-days was complete.
“Those who have been told to self-isolate will continue to do so. We will all continue to practice social distancing, diligent handwashing, and we will carefully monitor our health. We remain in close contact with public health authorities,” read their statement.
The NBA isn’t the only team that is taking precautions during this pandemic. The NHL and other sports leagues have also suspended their seasons for the time being.
