TMZ reported that the guard for the Houston Rockets tweeted that he was “feeling well” after he tested positive for COVID-19.

Russell eventually had to walk away from Oklahoma City without any championship wins after 11 seasons.

While noting that his diagnosis came before the Rockets took off for the restart of the NBA, the 31-year-old asked his followers to “mask up” and practice other safety measures. Russell also showed his appreciation to the fans and loved ones who have wished him well during this time.

The NBA star, who began his professional journey in 2008, has earned almost all the accolades, including scoring titles, All-Star game MVPs, and MVP awards.

According to CBS Sports, the one thing that has eluded the basketball player is a championship — even though he has played alongside top talents during his 12-year run in the NBA.

When he first started, Russell played alongside James Harden and Kevin Durant in the Oklahoma City Thunder. Although the trio made it to the 2012 Finals, they were unable to win the title. Russell eventually had to walk away from Oklahoma City without any championship wins after 11 seasons.

The occurrence hurt his fans because he played with several other top players such as Victor Oladipo, Serge Ibaka, Carmelo Anthony, Steven Adams, and Jerami Grant while at Oklahoma City.

Luckily, there’s some hope that he would win a championship with the Rockets as the team has been inching closer to the title over the last few years. Besides gearing up to win more accolades, Russell has been known to share a few stories from his past.

As reported by People, the 31-year-old recalled how he almost met Michael Jordan during an appearance on Jimmy Fallon’s “The Tonight Show.”

Russell said that he partook in a Michael Jordan camp session when he was younger and at the end of the event, “usually every kid — every team — you need to bring something for Michael Jordan [to] sign.”

Westbrook, however, ended up not getting in line with his team because he was “playing pick-up with other kids.” Thankfully, Westbrook got another chance to right that wrong, and he has since met Jordan.
