The NBA on Wednesday announced it was suspending its season after a Utah Jazz player tested positive for the Coronavirus .

ESPN reports that player is Rudy Gobert, and Adrian Wojnarowski reported Thursday that Donovan Mitchell also tested positive for coronavirus.

Wojnarowski also reported that Gobert had been careless in the locker room, touching other players and their belongings.

"The NBA is suspending game play following the conclusion of [Wednesday's] schedule of games until further notice,'' the league said in a statement Wednesday night. "The NBA will use this hiatus to determine next steps for moving forward in regard to the coronavirus pandemic.''

Other teams on that list include the Cleveland Cavaliers, New York Knicks, Boston Celtics and Toronto Raptors.

The Jazz were in Detroit on Saturday for a game against the Pistons. Out of an abundance of caution, medical staff has asked Pistons players, coaches, basketball staff and traveling party to self-isolate until further notice.

Additionally, the organization directed all employees to work from home for the rest of the week.
