Jazz star Donovan Mitchell says he tested positive for virus

By  | 

Donovan Mitchell of the Utah Jazz has confirmed he has tested positive for the coronavirus.

He said Thursday on social media that he is personally dealing with the pandemic that has temporarily shut down the league and other major sports leagues.

Mitchell is one of two players in the NBA to have tested positive: The other is his Jazz teammate Rudy Gobert, who was the first player to test positive but has not yet publicly confirmed his diagnosis.

A person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press Wednesday night that Gobert had tested positive. Gobert's test result forced the NBA to suspend the season.
