The Miami Heat held their first in-person team practice since the NBA suspended the season March 11 today at the Wide World of Sports Complex in Lake Buena Vista. And in a conference call, Goran Dragic revealed that Bam Adebayo and Kendrick Nunn are not with the team.

Previous reports had not revealed the names of two players who tested positive for coronavirus. Derrick Jones Jr., the first Heat player to test positive, is fully recovered and participated in the Heat practice.

All Heat players who joined the team for their bus ride to the “Disney bubble” quarantined in their hotel rooms for two days before Friday’s practice.

Erik Spoelstra said that Meyers Leonard is “moving great.” The Heat center suffered an ankle injury in early February and was still out when the league suspended its season.

Miami’s first scrimmage game will be July 22 against the Sacramento Kings.
