Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard was recently snitched on for not wearing a mask in the NBA bubble in Orlando, Fla.

In the aftermath, the big man admitted that he did not find it necessary for someone to report him while he was alone. In addition, he has said that he believes there are more important matters to talk about it.

The NBA suspended the 2019-20 season on March 11 after Utah Jazz star Rudy Gobert contracted the novel coronavirus. Since then, numerous NBA players have tested positive for the dangerous virus.

As a result, the league is being extremely cautious as it resumes the season in Orlando, Fla. Meanwhile, cases are skyrocketing across the state.

This is not the first time that Howard has been critical of the regulations in conjunction with the coronavirus. He recently defied social-distancing orders in the NBA bubble.

The 34-year-old was on the fence about returning for the conclusion of the 2019-20 campaign. However, he ultimately decided to play a role in the Lakers’ championship push.

The Lakers are the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference. The former All-Star vowed the Lakers would win a championship if they make it to the 2020 NBA Finals.

Howard is putting up 7.5 points and 7.4 rebounds per game this season.
