Jazz-Thunder postponed, NBA suspends season

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Utah's scheduled game at Oklahoma City was postponed Wednesday night and the NBA suspended its season a few minutes later after a Jazz player tested positive for the coronavirus.

The player is star center Rudy Gobert, according to a person who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because neither the league nor the team had confirmed it publicly. The Oklahoma Department of Health said in a tweet that the fans who attended the game are not at risk because the virus is spread through respiratory droplets, and only individuals in close contact would be at risk.

The positive test result was reported shortly before the scheduled tip-off between the Jazz and Thunder. The league said the affected player was not in the arena.
