This now marks the third player in the league to test positive for the coronavirus, and the first player outside of the Utah Jazz. "I'm glad I'm doing well", said Mitchell, who did not say if he has spoken to Gobert in recent days.
Mitchell said he continues to feel fine, and that the worst physical issue he's had during this process was going through the test for COVID-19 itself. "Jazz players privately say that Rudy Gobert had been careless in the locker room touching other players and their belongings".
"A preliminary positive came back on March 14". I wish I would have took this thing more seriously and I hope everyone else is going to do so, because we can do it together.
"It's kind of bringing back good memories, but you miss the game", Mitchell said. As you may already know, I just wanted to remind you guys to wash your hands with soap and water.
Adrian's error ushers Liverpool toward Champions League exit
While the Slovenian was shining in goal for the away team his opposite number was having a poor game, and cost Liverpool the tie. Diego Simeone hailed the performance of his goalkeeper Jan Oblak , saying; Our goalkeeper is the best in the world.
At a press conference earlier last week, Gobert had jokingly touched reporters' microphones on a table in front of him, making light of the perceived overreaction over the seriousness of the spreading virus.
The reigning Defensive Player of the Year became a bigger target of criticism when a video exhibiting how he apparently undervalued the viral disease made the rounds in social media.
Players are still allowed to do individual training at the team facilities. The NBA announced it was suspending its season minutes after Gobert's diagnosis was reported, and the NHL, NCAA, MLB, MLS and several other leagues had followed suit within 48 hours.
The outbreak has sickened more than 150,000 people worldwide and killed about 5,800, with thousands of new cases being confirmed every day.
The NBA that night suspended the entire league, and within 36 hours almost every major American sport had followed suit, including the National Hockey League, Major League Soccer, the PGA and LPGA Tours and NCAA college basketball.
