Jazz VP: Rudy Gobert, Donovan Mitchell ready to put virus issue behind them

Donovan Mitchell

The tension between Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell apparently has passed.

Utah Jazz executive vice president Dennis Lindsey spoke with local reporters on a video conference call Tuesday. Lindsey said that Gobert and Mitchell are ready to put their issues behind them.

Mitchell had some beef towards Gobert over the coronavirus. Mitchell believed that Gobert acted irresponsibility while unknowingly infected with the virus, which led to Mitchell becoming infected. One report said the relationship between the two could not be salvaged, but Gobert disputed that, and so does Lindsey.

The Jazz were 41-23 before the season was suspended, and Mitchell and Gobert are two of their best players, so there is no reason they shouldn’t try to get along.

Lindsey also told reporters they expect to open the team practice facility soon and that he would like the season to be completed as long as it is safe.

The Jazz were having a nice season and fourth in the West at the time of the season’s suspension.
