Milwaukee Bucks point guard Jrue Holiday is out indefinitely after testing positive for the coronavirus.

Holiday will not travel with the team for their upcoming matchup Wednesday against the Suns, and there’s no set timetable for his return.

Teammate Khris Middleton said, “Once he tested positive, you immediately think about his health, his safety, and then his family back home.”

The Bucks have yet to speak on Holiday, but it’s assumed that he’s in the league set 10 day protocols for a positive test.

Bryn Forbes started in his place last night against the Nuggets, and played 25 minutes and scored 15 points and grabbed five rebounds.

In Holiday’s absence, D.J. Augustin will also get a bump in minutes with his veteran experience.
