A few NBA players have come out and said they will not be participating in the league's restart in Orlando, and one of them is former Celtics guard Avery Bradley.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Bradley, who is now with the Lakers, has decided to stay home with his family. The report notes Bradley's 6-year old son has a history of struggling to recover from respiratory illnesses and because of this he likely would not have been able to enter the NBA's bubble with the rest of his family.

In addition, Wojnarowski is reporting JR Smith, who played with LeBron James in Cleveland, could join the Lakers and replace Bradley on the roster.
