Rudy Gobert reported feeling chills, a headache and a dry cough to Utah Jazz physicians on March 10th, which activated protocols for the NBA.

Tests for influenza A and B, strep and upper respiratory infections all came back negative. Oklahoma state health officials, along with physicians from the Jazz and Oklahoma City Thunder, decided Gobert should be tested for COVID-19 because he had a fever over 100 and reported having had houseguests from high-risk areas.

Gobert tested positive and the NBA suspended its season.
