I will continue to update this blog on NBA players who are diagnosed with COVID-19 as updates come in.
News has broke this morning, that Donovan Mitchell has tested positive for the coronavirus and now we are hearing that Rudy Gobert was touching everyone’s stuff in the locker room… but for now, it looks like all other Jazz players have tested negative for Coronavirus.
You can see all of the updates on Rudy Gobert, as the dropped last night, HERE.
Stephen A. Smith is being told that Donovan Mitchell didn’t have any symptoms before he tested positive. I watched that live myself, just now on ESPN First Take.
Fans of the NHL and NCAA stand by, for now. Conference tournaments are still planned to go on, as scheduled today. I’ll let everyone know if/when that changes.
