NBA Suspends Season
The NBA is suspending the 2019/20 season until further notice following Utah Jazz star Rudy Gobert's positive COVID-19 test.
It comes after the postponement of the OKC v Utah Jazz match, which was due to go ahead this evening in the US.
The NBA released this 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 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 game play following the conclusion of tonight’s schedule of games until further notice,"
"The NBA will use this hiatus to determine next steps for moving forward in regard to the coronavirus pandemic."
