Under self-quarantine for 14 days, Ibaka got creative and set up a home gym to keep himself in shape.
Built my own little gym at home during the self quarantine… need to stay in shape! I hope everyone is staying safe, following the experts advise and keeping positive and calm. pic.twitter.com/GGXrTk64Nn

All members of the Raptors who were tested for COVID-19 tested negative, but the team emphasized that these results will not change its current protocols involving self-quarantine and social distancing.
Ibaka defended Utah Jazz centre Rudy Gobert, who tested positive for COVID-19, for several minutes during Toronto’s victory over Utah on Monday. Fellow Jazz all-star Donovan Mitchell also contracted the virus.
Ibaka has enjoyed a career year with the Raptors in 2019-20, averaging 16.0 points and 8.3 rebounds per game. We’ll see if his home gym can keep him in peak form for if/when the season resumes.
