One of the Houston Rockets' All-Star guards is now at the Disney World complex, after James Harden arrived in Orlando, Florida on Tuesday evening.

The team posted a video on Twitter of Harden making his first appearance at the campus. Harden, the 2018 NBA Most Valuable Player, was not with the team when the Rockets flew to Orlando a week ago.

Houston's other All-Star guard, Russell Westbrook, has yet to join the team after announcing on Monday that he tested positive for the novel coronavirus. He has to produce two negative tests before he is allowed to join the Rockets in Disney World.

Harden, meanwhile, must first fulfill the NBA's quarantine protocol before joining the Rockets in practice.

The eight-time All-Star is averaging 34.4 points, 7.4 assists, and 6.4 rebounds for Houston, which sits at sixth place in the Western Conference with a 40-24 win-loss record.

The NBA season will resume on July 30, after having been suspended in March due to the health crisis.
