The 2020 NBA season has come to an abrupt halt, as all games have been suspended following a player for the Utah Jazz testing positive for the coronavirus
The NBA season is the latest victim of the coronavirus, as the 2020 season has been suspended. It was announced shortly before the Utah Jazz were to face off against the Oklahoma City Thunder on March 11 that the game was cancelled due to “unforseen circumstances.” It turned out that Jazz star Rudy Gobert had tested positive for the coronavirus. Players from the Jazz and Thunder have been placed under quarantine, according to ESPN’s senior NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski. “The NBA will use this hiatus to determine next steps for moving forward in regard to the coronavirus pandemic,” the league said in a statement.
Adrian reported that “I’ve been told that Rudy Gobert was never at the arena tonight, but he was in OKC. If he had been cleared of the virus, he was set to play.” Video of the 27-year-old touching all of the reporters’ microphones following the Jazz’ March 9 game against the Toronto Raptors has gone viral. He did it during a post-game news conference following the team’s 101-92 loss to the reigning NBA champs.
