Although he was unaware of his infection at that time, many criticized him for his actions. After the NBA suspended its league owing to Gobert’s situation, many called the Utah Jazz big man’s actions careless.

Immediately after the league’s suspension, Gobert apologised for his actions.

“The first and most important thing is I would like to publicly apologize to the people that I may have endangered,” he wrote on Instagram. “At the time, I had no idea I was even infected. I was careless and make no excuse, I hope my story serves as a warning and causes everyone to take this seriously. I will do whatever I can to support using my experience as way to educate others and prevent the spread of this virus.”

Gobert’s teammate Donovan Mitchell later became the NBA’s second victim of the Coronavirus.

If the players are indeed not doing good, it wouldn’t be good news for the Jazz. They will not want that to reflect on the court when the NBA eventually returns.
