Coronavirus: Donovan Mitchell second NBA player to test positive, per report, following teammate Rudy Gobert


A second NBA player has reportedly tested positive for the coronavirus. Utah Jazz All-Star forward Donovan Mitchell has tested positive for the virus after his teammate, Rudy Gobert, became the first player to test positive, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Gobert had reportedly been careless in the locker room in terms of touching other players and their belongings despite warnings about the severity of the situation. 

The league announced it has suspended the season after Wednesday night’s matchup between the Oklahoma City Thunder and Utah Jazz was postponed as a result of Gobert reportedly testing positive. 

The league has told teams that have played Utah in the last 10 days should self-quarantine. Utah’s opponents since March 2 include the Cleveland Cavaliers, New York Knicks, Boston Celtics, Detroit Pistons and Toronto Raptors. 

More to come.
