The Utah Jazz are dealing with their second case of the coronavirus. First, Rudy Gobert tested positive for the coronavirus outbreak on Wednesday.
Hours later, Jazz star Donovan Mitchell has now tested positive for the disease. He may have gotten the disease from Gobert, who was reportedly “careless” with his teammates and their belongings.
Mitchell was one of 58 members of the Jazz traveling party, who got tested for the disease. However, Mitchell was the only positive test of that group.
“Oklahoma health officials tested all members of the Utah Jazz traveling party, confirming 1 additional positive outcome for a Jazz player,” the Jazz said in a statement. “We are working closely with the CDC, Oklahoma & Utah state officials, & the NBA to monitor their health & determine the best path moving forward”
The NBA was forced to postpone last night’s game between the Jazz and the Oklahoma City Thunder in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The team said it was due to “unforeseen circumstances.”
A short time later, the league was forced to suspend its season. Following this announcement, the New Orleans Pelicans and Sacramento Kong’s game was postponed late last night before it began because Courtney Kirkland was a referee in Monday’s game between the Toronto Raptors and the Jazz.
The Jazz’s team hotel in Oklahoma City has been shut down to the public. It is currently undergoing a quarantine process.
