REPORT: Boy who got Donovan Mitchell’s autograph, Rudy Gobert’s sleeve not showing coronavirus symptoms
Mitchell and Gobert have the coronavirus, as does Detroit Pistons big man Christian Wood.
The family of a boy who went to a Detroit Pistons game and got an autograph and a shooting sleeve from Utah Jazz players who later tested positive for the coronavirus is being quarantined.
A boy at the Pistons’ game against the Jazz last week got an autograph from Donovan Mitchell and a game-worn shooting sleeve from Rudy Gobert.
So far, the boy isn’t showing any symptoms of the coronavirus, family members said.
The NBA suspended the season last Wednesday after Gobert tested positive. Mitchell tested positive on Thursday, while Wood’s tests results came out on Saturday.
Both Mitchell and Gobert have taken to social media to send messages to Jazz and basketball fans as a whole since their test results went public. Mitchell said he’s feeling fine despite having the coronavirus, while Gobert apologized for his actions.
To recall, Gobert jokingly touched a bunch of reporters’ mics in Utah.
The Jazz team, outside of Gobert and Mitchell, all tested negative for the coronavirus. However, since the incubation period for the virus is two weeks, the disease can take two weeks to appear.
It is sad to say this, but there are probably going to be more NBA players who get positive test results moving forward since this virus spreads so deceptively.
