Adrian Wojnarowski’s ESPN suspension ends Friday
ESPN NBA reporter Adrian Wojnarowski will be back at work starting Friday, per Richard Deitsch of The Athletic.
Wojnarowski was suspended by ESPN for two weeks for writing “F— you” to U.S. senator Josh Hawley. The veteran basketball insider was responding to a statement from Hawley blasting the NBA’s financial relationship with China and asking why the NBA didn’t allow players to wear phrases like “Support Our Troops” and “Back the Blue.”
Deitsch says Woj will end up reporting from the bubble in Orlando, meaning he will have to clear quarantine protocol.
NBA Media news: Adrian Wojnarowski's ESPN suspension ends tomorrow. Per sources: Woj will ultimately end up reporting from inside the NBA bubble in Orlando, though the dates on that are still being worked on.

The league’s seeding games will start on July 30. Woj should be in the bubble by then. There are a few other reporters at Walt Disney World as well.
Woj is arguably the top basketball reporter in the business. He joined ESPN three years ago after building his reputation at Yahoo.
