ORLANDO, Fla. - Practices begin for the San Antonio Spurs in the Orlando bubble.

For the first time since March, the Spurs gathered together for their first team practice.

Before they left for Orlando, the Spurs could only participate in individual drills, but this weekend is the start of an accelerated training camp, as the restart of the season approaches.

Conditioning has been the biggest concern so far, getting everyone into game shape after being stuck at home.

One of the big questions for the Spurs was the health and safety of head coach Gregg Popovich.

Pop is 71 years old and considered at a higher risk for COVID-19. He said that if the bubble works, he would be safer there than he would be in Texas.

Spurs will get another 10 days of practices in Orlando and then they'll get three scrimmages later this month against the Milwaukee Bucks, Brooklyn Nets and Indiana Pacers.

The Spurs' first official game of the restart is July 31 against the Sacramento Kings.
