NBA Suspends 2019-2020 Season Due to Coronavirus

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.

The NBA is suspending gameplay following the conclusion of tonight’s schedule of games until further notice. The NBA will use this hiatus to determine the next steps for moving forward in regard to the coronavirus pandemic.”

The NBA playoffs were set to begin in April. Before the cancellation of the season, basketball fans anticipated the return of LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers, as well as the first absence of Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors in seven years.

Stay tuned for further cancellations due to the coronavirus outbreak. In related news, Coachella has been postponed due to health concerns.
