It's been a bit of drama the last 48hrs in Boston Bruins' land. 

The Bruins revealed recently that forward David Pastrnak had been deemed "unfit to play" and would be sidelined for an unconfirmed period of time. 

Head coach Bruce Cassidy revealed he had no idea when Pastrnak would be back and if he would miss a game, the playoffs or be back soon. 

Then today it was confirmed that not only Pastrnak was sidelined but Ondrej Kase was also labelled "unfit to play".

To top it off, some reports surfaced that the duo were being disciplined after pictures surfaced of the two in the North End and also practicing at other facilities. 

Now Pastrnak's agent J.P. Barry has revealed the real reason Pastrnak is sidelined. 

Barry told The Athletic that Pastrnak is currently quarantined because of COVID-19 reasons. 

While Pastrnak tested negative himself, Barry revealed that Pastrnak came into close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19. 

The Athletic adds that there's no timetable right now and if Pastrnak will be able to practice with the team before the head to Toronto on July 26.
