Donovan Mitchell Becomes Second Utah Jazz Player with Coronavirus

Following the NBA cancelling all foreseeable games for a month and Rudy Gobert testing positive for the coronavirus, another Utah Jazz teammate now has the disease.

Emerging star Donovan Mitchell has tested positive for the virus.

As we’ve all seen, Rudy Gobert mocked the situation at a press conference earlier this week, wiping down tables, microphones and the such and it looks like it extended further than just that. According to Adrian Wojnarowski, he was also being careless in locker rooms and with teammates during that time.

The Jazz released a statement following the news:

“We are working closely with the CDC, Oklahoma and Utah state officials, and the NBA to monitor their health and determine the best path moving forward.”

At this time, both players seem to be under control and do not seem to be in any serious danger as of now. While the NBA continues testing its athletes and staff, we’re sure more cases will come out this week of players testing positive.

For now, let’s hope the crisis swells down and our players are safe and sound.
