SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell tested positive for COVID-19, according to a tweet from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

According to the tweet, league sources told ESPN about Mitchell’s positive test.

The news comes the morning after teammate Rudy Gobert tested positive for COVID-19 forcing the team’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder to be postponed and eventually led to the NBA suspending all games until further notice.

“Jazz players privately say that Rudy Gobert had been careless in the locker room touching other players and their belongings,” read the Tweet.

The Utah Jazz released a statement about the “additional player” on Thursday morning. According to the statement, Mitchell is the only additional positive test.

“As a follow-up to yesterday’s positive COVID-19 test, Oklahoma health officials tested all members of the Utah Jazz traveling party, confirming one additional positive outcome for a Jazz player. We are working closely with the CDC, Oklahoma and Utah state officials, and the NBA to monitor their health and determine the best path moving forward.”
