The NBA has told its teams to close their training and practice facilities to all players and staff starting Friday, a development that came on a day where four more teams revealed they have had players or staff test positive for the coronavirus.
Over the last few days, Donovan Mitchell has spent numerous hours playing NBA 2K, watching movies and his old highlights, and, yes, using the time to try and forgive Rudy Gobert.
Oh, and he’s used it to figure out a way to still help his community too.
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said Thursday night that the league’s hiatus because of the coronavirus pandemic will likely last at least a month, or roughly what would have been the remainder of an uninterrupted regular season.
“I want to thank everyone for the outpouring of concern and support,” Jazzman RudyGobert posted on Instagram. “I have gone through so many emotions since learning of my diagnosis ... mostly fear, anxiety, and embarrassment.”
