By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert has tested positive for the coronavirus. He reportedly wanted to play tonight’s game with the disease.

It’s not clear how he may have got it. But he went through tests that confirmed the news.

He is the reason why the Jazz and the Oklahoma City Thunder game was postponed on Wednesday night. The Thunder announced that it was “unforeseen circumstances” that led to the postponement.

The Thunder’s public address announcer said that everyone inside the arena was city. But that may not be true for the players.

According to our sources, the players on both the Jazz and the Thunder are being  quarantined inside Chesapeake Energy Center. They may have to be in isolation until it is confirmed if they may have received the deadly disease, as well.

It’s going to take some time before the players know he they have the disease or not.

Gobert is the first NBA player to contract the disease. But it’s the second known player to get the disease, as Juventus player Daniele Rugani also has it.

The Jazz big man may have shaken hands with his teammates and even done the same with the Thunder players.
