“You think, ‘This is not gonna affect us. We’re the NBA.’ One of our players has the coronavirus. Who knows what that means for their team and the other teams that have been with them? You get really concerned for what’s going on, not just here in the NBA. but in the entire world. These are things you watch in movies,” said Nuggets coach Michael Malone while reacting to the development.
As per the latest reports, Gobert is recovering well. However, AP sources are now reporting that another Utah Jazz player, Donovan Mitchell, has tested positive for COVOD-19 and Gobert’s action was careless in the dressing room.
