An NBA player has tested positive for COVID-19.

The NBA‘s 2019-2020 season has been suspended following the discovery that Utah Jazz player Rudy Gobert tested positive for COVID-19, otherwise known as coronavirus. ESPN Senior NBA Insider Adrian Wojnarowski broke the news on Twitter and shortly after, the NBA issued an official statement.

The NBA announced that a player on the Utah Jazz has preliminarily tested positive for COVID-19. The test result was reported shortly prior to the tip-off of tonight’s game between the Jazz and the Oklahoma City Thunder at Chesapeake Energy Arena. At that time, tonight’s game was canceled. The affected player was not in the arena.
