Jazz Star Donovan Mitchell Reportedly Tests Positive For Coronavirus

UPDATE (11:18 P.M. ET): Donovan Mitchell is the only additional member of the Jazz — either player or personnel — who has tested positive for the new coronavirus, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

ORIGINAL STORY: A second member of the Utah Jazz reportedly has the new coronavirus.

Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell has tested positive for COVID-19, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported Thursday, citing sources. Utah center Rudy Gobert tested positive for the virus Wednesday, prompting an indefinite suspension of the NBA season.

Here’s some additional context from Wojnarowski:

Whether Gobert infected any other members of the Jazz — or players on other teams, for that matter, remains to be seen. It’s worth noting that Gobert apparently is doing well, to the point where the star center believed he could’ve played Wednesday night against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
