The 2021 G League season is taking place in a bubble at the World Disney Resort in Orlando, Florida due to the outbreak of the corona virus.

Brimah had been absent from team activities due to his late arrival to the bubble before going through a mandatory eight days quarantine. He trained for the first time in the wee hours of Wednesday, February 17.

Ghana’s leading basketball portal understands, the 2014 National College Champion’s late arrival to the bubble was due to personal reasons he had to resolve.
