Oklahoma City Thunder guard Dennis Schroder returned to the NBA bubble near Orlando after he and his wife welcomed their second child, according to a report published in The Oklahoman on Tuesday afternoon.

Schroder, 26, must quarantine for at least four days before he is able to return to the court. He is expected to miss Wednesday's game against the Miami Heat, but it is possible that he could return for Friday's game against the Los Angeles Clippers.

In 64 games (one start) this season, Schroder is averaging 18.9 points and 4.0 assists. He is shooting 46.9 percent from the field and 37.9 percent from beyond the arc, both career highs.

Schroder recently was named as a finalist for the NBA's Sixth Man of the Year award. The other two players up for the honor are Lou Williams and Montrezl Harrell, both of whom play for the Clippers.

The native of Germany spent five seasons with the Atlanta Hawks before joining the Thunder last season. He provides the Thunder with capable depth in the backcourt behind starting guards Chris Paul and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander.
