Donovan Mitchell Speaks Out About Testing Positive For Coronavirus

The Jazz last played Monday night at home against Toronto, potentially putting Raptors players who came in contact with Gobert at risk of contracting the virus. I sympathize with Rudy Gobert, but I'm not sure his teammates are there yet.

In addition to the teams we discussed in that earlier story, the Nuggets and Sixers are among the clubs whose players are being advised to temporarily self-quarantine, per Mike Singer of The Denver Post and Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer (Twitter link), respectively.

The Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City was nearly filled to capacity and players had already begun pre-game warm-ups when both the Jazz and Thunder teams suddenly walked off the court and returned to their locker rooms.

"The NBA announced that a player on the Utah Jazz has preliminarily tested positive for COVID-19".

Taking Steps to Protect Higher-Risk Populations from COVID-19
Stocking up on food supplies and toilet paper as if the world is coming to an end is a catastrophic "fight or flight" response. Attempts to reduce the risk of the spread of the virus by air transport only led to the shutting down of many airline routes.

The Raptors' 14-day isolation comes after a Utah player, reportedly centre Rudy Gobert, tested positive for the virus that has the sports world screeching to a halt.

In Sacramento, California, referee Courtney Kirkland was not on the court as game time neared.

"Hopefully this virus runs its course over the next 60 days or so and then at that point, we can start making decisions about: Does the National Basketball Association play games, what our schedule looks like, how we progress from there?"

It is likely to add pressure to the organizers of the Tokyo Olympic Games, which are scheduled to start on July 24. While there are debates, the NBA's thought process and decison makes sense. "We expect to have a further update tomorrow". Keep comments relevant to the article.
