In the statement, the NBA also stated that this positive test was the reason for the abrupt cancellation of the game between the Jazz and the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Gobert, a 2020 All-Star and two-time reigning Defensive Player of the Year, had previously been mocking the hysteria over the illness. Now he has become the league’s Patient Zero, forcing them to suspend play indefinitely.
