Kawhi Leonard has arrived in Orlando, Florida for the restart of the NBA season and is currently going through the quarantine protocol before joining the Los Angeles Clippers.

Clippers coach Doc Rivers confirmed as much to ESPN, with Leonard set to quarantine for two days before joining team activities. 

Leonard did not join the team when it flew to Orlando last week.

Rivers told ESPN that the Clippers are now healthy, after seeing key players -- particularly Leonard and All-Star guard Paul George -- endure nagging injuries throughout the season.

"I think everybody's healthy, that is a great thing. Guys were not as healthy in training camp at the beginning of this year. Now we got Paul George healthy, we have Kawhi healthy, we don't have a guy that's injured right now," Rivers said.

The Clippers had a 44-20 record, second in the Western Conference, when the NBA halted all activities in March due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.

The NBA season will resume on July 30.
