NBA suspending season amid coronavirus
UNDATED (AP) — The NBA season will be suspended until further notice following tonight’s schedule.
The decision was announced after a Utah Jazz player tested positive Wednesday for the coronavirus, and only hours after the majority of the league’s owners were leaning toward playing games without fans in arenas. A person with knowledge of the situation said the player who tested positive was Jazz center Rudy Gobert (goh-BEHR’).
The league says it will use the hiatus to determine next steps for moving forward regarding the pandemic.
