SALT LAKE CITY — Utah Jazz stars Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert have been cleared of COVID-19 after spending 14 days in quarantine and isolation, the team announced Friday.
“The (Utah Department of Health) has determined that all Jazz players and staff, including Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert who tested positive for the novel Coronavirus, no longer pose a risk of infection to others.”
Gobert and Mitchell had been in isolated since March 11 when Gobert tested positive, prompting the abrupt cancelation of a game in Oklahoma City moments before tip-off. The NBA immediately suspended play across the entire league.
Jazz players have stayed in close contact with each other over the past two weeks, the team said.
“We have a Jazz group chat that’s always blowing up,” said Jazz forward Joe Ingles, who has maintained a blog with his family since the league suspended play.
Mitchell has been active online and on social media, streaming video games with his teammates, other NBA players, and famed gamer Ninja.
