As the San Antonio Spurs' 2019-20 season is still on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic, players find themselves quarantined in an effort to not spread the virus.

But that doesn't mean the players are not still hard at work staying in shape during this pandemic.

Spurs staff are ensuring the players are staying in shape and proving them their needs during the crisis.

"I have been living in “quarantine” for two weeks now. I’m going out to only take my dog for a walk," said Belinelli in an interview with EuroHoops. "We do our grocery shopping online, and I’m working out at home."

Said Belinelli: "I want to also thank the Spurs staff, that is absolutely present and ready to accommodate our every need, by bringing us food and all the necessary tools to continue our sports routine as much as possible."

Belinelli's home country of Italy has been hit hard by the COVID-19 virus and he's doing his part to help.

He recently gave financial help to the Bologna hospital in Italy to help fight COVID-19.

Belinelli has also been on the front lines via his social media urging everyone to practice social distancing, washing hands, and raising awareness of the situation in Italy.

"I know how much more important the work of all doctors today is. Help as I can, from afar, in the hope of being able to return soon to Bologna and thank one by one all the people who are on the front line today," Belinelli said. "I've never felt so proud to be Italian."
