NBA suspends season over coronavirus; infected player faced Detroit Pistons

March 11, 2020, 9:56 PM


The NBA has suspended all games until further notice after a Utah Jazz player tested positive for coronavirus Wednesday. And the Pistons, who played the Jazz at Little Caesars Arena last Saturday, have reportedly been told to self-quarantine.

The average incubation period for coronavirus is five days.

The infected player is Jazz center Rudy Gobert, who played 35 minutes of Saturday's game. According to USA Today, he also had a "small dustup" with the Pistons' Christian Wood.

It's not clear when Gobert may have contracted the illness.

Also from USA Today:

Earlier in the week, Gobert met with reporters and in what he thought was a joke, touched reporters’ microphones and recorders. That happened after the league had sent multiple memos telling players how serious to take coronavirus.

The Pistons were one of the worst-performing teams in the league this season, with a 20-46 record. They were scheduled to play through April 14, with eight remaining games at home.
