UPDATE: Here’s a statement from the Utah Jazz:

Utah Jazz C Rudy Gobert has tested positive for coronavirus, per The Athletic’s Shams Charania. The Jazz-Thunder game on Wednesday night was postponed and the players have been quarantined inside the building. Gobert was held out of shootaround earlier in the day and was questionable heading into the game.

Here’s a video of Gobert talking to media on Monday. It shows him touching mics and recorders from the media.

The NBA announced shortly after the game was postponed that the season has been suspended. During the hiatus, the League will discuss next steps in how to deal with the outbreak.
