Markelle Fultz compared the Orlando bubble to an AAU tournament-like feel due to the hotel setting.

"I've kind of been thinking about it like it's going to be an AAU tournament. You go on the road -- sometimes you have tournaments in your hometown, but you still stay in a hotel," said Fultz.

The Magic are currently a half-game behind the Nets for seventh place in the East.

Fultz said that he feels that the return of games can add to social justice movements across the country.

"I think as long as we're safe, this is something that we all need. Basketball is a big part of a lot of people's lives. Not just ours, but our families, people that just watch it. So I feel as though there's two ways to this path of the NBA returning. But I feel as though we can make it the best of both worlds, as long as we're doing everything that we can do for not only ourselves but standing up for what's right in this world."
