SALT LAKE CITY — The NBA season has been suspended after a Utah Jazz player — numerous outlets have reported it is center Rudy Gobert — tested positive for coronavirus.

Gobert was listed as out for the Jazz’s Wednesday night game against the Oklahoma City Thunder because of illness, and moments before the contest was set to begin, it was stopped and later postponed.


Utah Jazz All-Star Rudy Gobert has tested positive for coronavirus, sources tell @TheAthleticNBA @Stadium.

Sources say Gobert is feeling good, strong and stable — and was feeling strong enough to play tonight.

SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Jazz’s two representatives acquitted themselves well enough in their first career NBA All-Star Game on Sunday night, although their side came up just short as Team LeBron beat Team Giannis in dramatic fashion, 157-155.

The “Elam Ending” was instituted for the game, and the target score was 157, which Los Angeles Lakers big man Anthony Davis reached for Team LeBron on a free throw. It was an anticlimactic finish for what was a dramatic fourth quarter.

Jazz center Rudy Gobert was tremendous for Team Giannis, as he finished with 21 points, 11 rebounds, two assists and a block in 19 minutes. His Utah teammate, Donovan Mitchell, scored seven points with five rebounds, four assists, two steals and a block in 14 minutes.

Fifty-four games into the Jazz’s season, now at the All-Star break, with 28 yet to play, the questions emerge: Who are these guys? How good are they? Are they what they were expected to be?

If they are what their record says they are, at 36-18, they are twice as likely to win as they are to lose. That may not be statistically sound reasoning, but, either way, they have shown both a propensity and an ability to stumble and bumble, then learn and fight back, then fumble, then climb back again.
