But Meyers Leonard certainly will have ample free time amid the Miami Heat's quarantine life at Disney World.

Required to remain in his room until recording two negative coronavirus tests after Wednesday's arrival, Leonard took to Instagram Live to offer an initial review of his home away from home for the foreseeable future, the Gran Destino Tower at Disney's Coronado Resort.

"Welcome," he said on his selfie video, "to bubble life."

Initial complaint?

"I still got to figure out what I'm going to do about internet," he said, having arrived well stocked with technology to pursue his gaming passion. "Apparently the Wi-Fi is trash. I'm about to bash my head against the wall, because my PC setup isn't working."


And, no, he said, no hardwire available.

"I couldn't plug anything in," he said. "I was about to lose my mind."

Other issues? "Bed's pretty average ... . I think I'll be all right. I think it's like a king, so I can lay diagonally."

Leonard is officially listed at 7 feet, 260 pounds.
