Utah Jazz player Rudy Gobert has said that he wished he’d taken the coronavirus outbreak ‘more seriously’ after he became the first player in the NBA to contact the virus.
Gobert was not at the arena, according to Royce Young of ESPN, but rather on standby pending the results of his test. Had they come back negative, he planned on playing.
With Gobert reportedly infected, there is the very real possibility that opposing players may have also caught the virus.
Gobert’s last update about himself was via Twitter where he shared about losing his sense of smell and taste during his isolation.
