Richaun Holmes reportedly has crossed the line when it comes to the NBA’s health and safety protocol.
The Sacramento Kings Center stepped beyond the border of the Walt Disney World campus, where the NBA is hosting the rest of its season, to pick up food he had delivered to the bubble, per Shams Charania of The Athletic. As a result, Holmes has to quarantine for 10 days.
He has eight more days to go.

Holmes on Monday apologized in a statement on Twitter.
“After the initial quarantine period, I briefly and accidentally crossed the NBA campus line to pick-up a food delivery,” Holmes wrote. “I am currently in quarantine and have 8 days left. I apologize for my actions and look forward to rejoining my teammates for our playoff push.”

It’s unclear if Homes will face any discipline, and specifics regarding the situation are unknown as to how far over the line Homes traveled or how he was caught for the mishap.
One thing is for sure, you can’t make this stuff up. And Twitter, as you could expect, had fun with the news.
