Salt Lake City, Utah – Utah Jazz star Donovan Mitchell tested positive for the coronavirus, ESPN reports.

League sources confirmed the news to ESPN Thursday morning. The all-star guard is the second NBA player with COVID-19. He joins teammate Rudy Gobert who tested positive on Wednesday.

Gobert’s diagnosis halted the Jazz’s game against the Mavericks, and it ultimately prompted the suspension of the NBA season.

During a media availability on Monday, Gobert mocked coronavirus concerns and touched every microphone in front of him. It’s unclear how many people came in contact with the equipment after he left.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Jazz players said Gobert had been “careless in the locker room touching other players and their belongings.”
