All Raptors players and staff test negative for coronavirus

Raptors

The Toronto Raptors announced that all members of the organization tested negative for COVID-19.

The news comes on the heels of the Raptors’ traveling party testing negative for the virus as well on Friday.

The Raptors were the last team to play the Utah Jazz, who had All-Stars Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell test positive for the virus.

However, we have to know this: even though the Raptors players’ tests came back negative, the incubation period for the virus is two weeks, so the disease can take two weeks to appear:

So far, Mitchell and Gobert are the only two NBA players that are known to have contracted the coronavirus. The NBA is expected to be on hold for at least the next 30 days.

The Raptors went 46-18 before the season got suspended on Wednesday. They have the second-best record in the Eastern Conference, trailing only the Milwaukee Bucks, who have the best record in the NBA after having the No. 1 seed last season as well.

The Raptors defeated the Jazz on Monday by a final score of 101-92. The game was played in Salt Lake City.
