*Utah Jazz player Rudy Gobert apparently thought it was funny to finish an interview about the coronavirus by touching all of the microphones, recorders and phones of reporters at a pre-game press conference on Monday.

Two days later, it was announced that he had tested positive for the COVID-19, putting the NBA season on ice and all of those reporters whose devices he touched at risk.

Apparently, this was Gobert’s way of making light of the virus and downplaying its seriousness. It was his last attempt at humor before heading to the team’s shootaround. On Thursday, TMZ reported that a second Jazz player, Donovan Mitchell, has now tested positive for coronavirus.
