A setback for hoops fans everywhere.
The NBA has suspended the 2019-20 season after Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert tested positive for coronavirus on Wednesday.
The NBA made the decision after a game between the Jazz and Oklahoma City Thunder was postponed, then eventually called off.
According to a statement from the NBA, the test result was reported shortly before tip-off. ESPN's Royce Young reported that a team doctor was seen sprinting onto the floor to talk to officials before the game tipped off.
According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, both teams are still quarantined in the arena in Oklahoma City. Wojanrowski said Wednesday night will be the final night of games for the foreseeable future as the NBA enters a hiatus.
