NBA suspends season after player tests positive for coronavirus

NBA basketball

VIDEO: The NBA has announced that they are suspending the season until further notice following the positive test of a player.

The league released a statement just before Utah was set to play the Thunder in Oklahoma City and the game was halted minutes before tipoff.

The NBA says it will use the hiatus to determine its next steps. The league hasn’t identified the Utah player, but there are reports it’s Rudy Gobert.

The Toronto Raptors played Utah on Monday, and Gobert played for 31 minutes during that game. The Raptors have not said if their players are being tested.

The NBA is recommending any team that played Utah within the last 10 days to self quarantine.
