NBA: Utah Jazz at Oklahoma City Thunder Alonzo Adams-USA TODAY Sports

The National Basketball Association has suspended the season after a Utah Jazz player “preliminary tests positive for COVID-19” before tip-off against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

ESPN’s Rachel Nichols tweeted out the statement from the NBA before the game.

ESPN’s Royce Young says the Jazz player has been identified as Rudy Gobert, who was not in Oklahoma City tonight.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski says Thunder and Jazz players are currently being quarantined inside their locker rooms.

Games that were currently being playing Wednesday were able to be finished.

There is currently no time table when the season will resume.
