Shocking: Donovan Mitchell Becomes Latest NBA Star To Test Positive For Coronavirus


ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that Utah Jazz star Donovan Mitchell has tested positive for the coronavirus.

Mitchell becomes the second Jazz player to test positive for contracting the virus, after news of Rudy Gobert contracting the virus forced the league to cancel a match between the Jazz and Oklahoma City Thunder.

Jazz players are privately saying that Gobert showed a cavalier attitude toward the virus in the locker room, touching teammates and their belongings.

At Monday’s media availability, Gobert was seen touching all the microphones and tape recorders at the end of his session with reporters.

Players the Jazz have faced within the past 10 days are being told to self-quarantine.

The Toronto Raptors, who played the Jazz on Monday, announced that members of the team’s traveling party have been tested for the coronavirus and that they are awaiting the results.

The NBA announced Wednesday night that it was suspending the season following the Jazz’s announcement of a positive coronavirus test.

There are 259 games, roughly 21% of the schedule, left to play this season.
