Kevin Love said he would have to get used to practicing under the new distancing regulations, describing his return to the Cleveland Cavaliers practice facility "just weird."
Cavs players returned to the practice facility for the first time since the league was suspended in March.
"Was it weird? Yeah. I had [Cavs assistant coach] Dan Geriot at my basket and having him rebound and pass me the ball with a mask and gloves on. It's just odd. It's just weird," Love said.
Players and team personnel must stand 12 feet apart under new guidelines, with only four players allowed inside the facilities at one time.
Love added that returning to practice gave him a sense of normalcy.
"For me, I played 25-ish years of organized basketball and this is the longest I've ever gone without touching [a basketball]. And it's something I really, really enjoy doing. ... Going out there and having some sense of normalcy and getting on the court and actually shooting was pretty uplifting."
