The Toronto Raptors are trying to make themselves as comfortable as possible in self-quarantine — and that effort is being led by Serge Ibaka.

After Utah Jazz players Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell tested positive for the coronavirus (COVID-19), the team put themselves in self-quarantine for 14 days after they had a high risk of being exposed to the virus after playing Utah on Monday. The Raptors have since all tested negative for COVID-19 but will remain in self-quarantine for the 14-day duration.

Players around the league are looking for ways to stay in shape as the NBA's season has been suspended for at least 30 days and Ibaka has taken to social media to show how he's spending his time in insolation in a series called, "Mafuzzy Chef presents: how bored are you?"
