The NBA season has been suspended after Utah Jazz player Rudy Gobert tested positive for Coronavirus.
Three teams are now in self-quarantine with no further games set to be played.
Gobert was believed to be diagnosed with the ever-spreading virus just moments before the Jazz’s meeting with Oklahoma Thunder on Wednesday night – the sides were ready for tip off which was then delayed and eventually called off.
