The NBA, as we all know by now, suspended its season last Wednesday after Utah Jazz star Rudy Gobert tested positive for coronavirus. I'm glad he's doing OK.

"I keep making a joke when people ask me, I say, 'If you were to tell me I'm about to play in a seven-game series tomorrow, I'm ready to lace-up, '" he continued.

The 27-year-old French center had jokingly touched reporters' recorders after being told to keep a safe distance away from media during the coronavirus outbreak, and one ESPN report claimed he was too cavalier in the locker room, touching teammates and their belongings. Prior to being diagnosed, the Utah Jazz player was seen jokingly touching the microphones at a press conference.

"I'm asymptomatic. I don't have any symptoms".

It will be up to judges assigned to a case to determine whether a trial or preliminary inquiry that they were scheduled to hear is considered urgent.

"It's kind of bringing back good memories, but you miss the game", Mitchell said. "You may seem fine, be fine", Mitchell said. "My feeling from the Jazz and talking to people there is that I think once everyone takes a deep breath, that this will be okay", said Lowe, adding that he saw several other players over the past two weeks who weren't taking the virus seriously. "I'm glad I'm doing well".

Mitchell says he showed no symptoms of being sick before testing positive for the coronavirus, and he continues to have no signs of illness since going into isolation.

The Jazz announced on Monday morning that Mitchell is making a donation to Granite School District in Salt Lake City to help students afford meals while schools are closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. He said getting swabbed was so uncomfortable that it left him in tears. So I'm solo in here, playing video games all day.
