The growing concerns surrounding the coronavirus reached a fevered pitch on Wednesday night when the league decided to cancel the Jazz-Thunder game after Rudy Gobert tested positive for the coronavirus.
The league announced it would suspend the season soon after, but questions still remained as to what happened to get us here.
The Jazz provided some clarity when they released a lengthy statement on Wednesday night on the process taken to find out that Gobert had the coronavirus.
Later, arena staff were seen disinfecting the benches after everybody had left.
It was just earlier in the week when Gobert seemed to make light of the coronavirus by touching every single microphone and recorder in front of him during his media session.
