Raptors respond to surfaced photo of Terence Davis wearing mask with hole in it
Davis previously posted on social media about possible conspiracies with COVID-19, so it is possible he purposely wore the controversial mask.

As a result of Davis’ mistake, the NBA has reminded everyone inside the bubble to wear their masks. If players don’t listen, they will get fined or suspended.
After the Raptors defeated the Miami Heat on Monday to improve to 3-0 at the bubble, Raptors head coach Nick Nurse told reporters that president Masai Ujiri and general manager Bobby Webster have spoken to Davis.
Nick Nurse said Masai Ujiri and Bobby Webster have spoken to Terence Davis in regards to the picture that's circulating of him wearing a mask with a hole in it. "Leadership is taking care of it."

Denver Nuggets rookie Michael Porter Jr. made headlines for the wrong reasons last week when he said COVID-19 is being overblown and that the virus is being used for population control. It was an arrogant statement since thousands of people have died in America because of COVID-19, including the mom of Minnesota Timberwolves star center Karl-Anthony Towns.
The Raptors are no doubt happy they are playing well down in Orlando, Florida. However, Terence Davis’ actions could be seen as a black eye on the organization unless the higher-ups in the franchise ensure the youngster doesn’t wear a mask with a hole in it ever again.
Toronto’s next game is on Wednesday against the Orlando Magic. The Raptors will look to improve to 4-0 at Disney World.
