Rudy Gobert Reveals He Still Has COVID-19 Symptoms

"The taste has returned, but the smell is still not 100%".

Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert still has trouble smelling after testing positive for the coronavirus in March, he told French newspaper L'Equipe. "I can smell the smells, but not from afar", he told French outlet L'Equipe, according to NBC Sports via Google Translate.

Describing his symptoms a month and a half ago, Gobert said he had some "little things" that scared him, such as feeling as if he had "ants in my toes". For those who remember, Gobert was dismissive of the virus when reports first circulated about its spread, which made his diagnosis that much more ironic. Three months later, Gobert hasn't fully recovered.

COVID-19 infects 9585 more people in U.S. Florida
Almost a third of all coronavirus infections statewide have come in the last week alone. On June 26, 12.82 percent of new cases** tested positive.

The Jazz are among the 22 teams who will take part when the National Basketball Association resumes the season at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex near Orlando, Fla., beginning next month.

Since his diagnosis, Gobert has educated people about the dangers of the virus and even told fans about some weird symptoms. He apologized for his carelessness and urged others to take coronavirus seriously. While some - like Jabari Parker and Malcolm Brogdon - have revealed their positive tests results, others have chosen to remain anonymous. The Jazz were in Oklahoma City when Gobert tested positive. They may be free of the virus and cleared to play, but that doesn't necessarily mean they have fully recovered.
