Utah Jazz star Donovan Mitchell has tested positive for the coronavirus, league sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Mitchell becomes the second Jazz player to contract the virus, along with Rudy Gobert, sources told Wojnarowski. Gobert’s diagnosis led to the postponement of Wednesday’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Jazz players are privately saying that Gobert showed a cavalier attitude toward the virus with his teammates in the locker room, touching them and their belongings.
Another example of Gobert’s attitude stems from Monday’s media availability, when he was seen touching every reporters’ microphone at the end of his session.
