Utah Jazz All-Star PG Donovan Mitchell has tested positive for COVID-19 coronavirus, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported Thursday afternoon. This comes a day after the Jazz-Thunder game was postponed and Utah center Rudy Gobert tested positive for the virus as well. Apparently, Gobert has been very ignorant lately pertaining to the outbreak.

On Wednesday night, the Jazz and Thunder were set to play in OKC. Prior to the game, Gobert was questionable due to an illness. The players are refs were taken off the court and later the game was canceled. The players on each team were quarantined and Gobert then tested positive. Not long after, the NBA decided to suspend play indefinitely. More info at the links below.
