Gobert, 27, was the first confirmed NBA player to test positive for the virus. His diagnosis on Mar. 11 led to the immediate suspension of the NBA season.
While the two-time Defensive Player of the Year’s reckless behavior before his positive test led to significant criticism, he has since gone out of his way to try to educate the public about the reality of the coronavirus.
