Reaction To NBA Season Suspension After Player Has Coronavirus



The NBA has confirmed its season has been suspended after a player has tested positive on Wednesday for coronavirus. The Thunder and Jazz were moments from tipoff when a trainer approached referees. Moments later, players, coaches and referees left the court. The game was then suspended as Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert tested positive for the coronavirus.

An hour later, the NBA announced that the season would be suspended. Games on Wednesday, other than the game between the Jazz and Thunder, will be allowed to conclude, making the decision effective on Thursday.

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