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.

There will be no player coach or availability at the arena. Players are still quarantined

While this is a reporting situation this is very scary for those of us that travel and cover the team.
