Following Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell of the Utah Jazz, Detroit Pistons star Christian Wood is now the third NBA player to test positive for the highly contagious and quickly spreading coronavirus. You may remember that before he tested positive, Rudy was seen openly touching fellow teammates, opponents and the microphones used by the media during interviews.
The NBA is currently on an estimated 30-date hiatus due to the coronavirus outbreak that many attribute to Rudy Gobert’s carelessness—apparently he agrees because he has apologized and donated $500K to those impacted. Well now, NBA player Christian Wood is the latest player to test positive for the virus and the first person not to be a member of the Utah Jazz.
The Pistons issued a statement just after confirming that a player had tested positive but did not identify who he was by name. At the time, the team said the player would “remain in isolation and under the care of team medical staff.” As we now know, that player turned out to be Christian Wood.
Christian played against the Utah Jazz last week, specifically matching up with Rudy at half court 63 times during that game. During the final 5 minutes, 51 seconds, there was a confrontation between the two in which Pistons player Bruce Brown was also involved.
Other teams that have played the Utah Jazz recently, include the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Boston Celtics and the Toronto Raptors.
