NBA suspends season until further notice after player tests positive for the coronavirus
The NBA announced that it has suspended its season until further notice after the completion of Wednesday night's games after a member of the Utah Jazz preliminarily tested positive for the coronavirus.
The player is the Jazz's Rudy Gobert, sources told ESPN. That led the Jazz's game at Oklahoma City to be postponed just before tipoff.
The NBA said it "will use this hiatus to determine next steps for moving forward in regard to the coronavirus pandemic."

I heard the XFL and NCAA are playing games in empty arenas. I still plan on going to AEW next Wednesday but the wife and I go every year to a gaming convention in Toronto and are now a little hesitant but at the moment still plan to go.
The National Hockey League has suspended its 2019-20 season until further notice in response to the novel coronavirus pandemic, the league announced on Thursday.
“In light of ongoing developments resulting from the coronavirus, and after consulting with medical experts and convening a conference call of the Board of Governors, the National Hockey League is announcing today that it will pause the 2019-20 season beginning with tonight’s games,” Commissioner Gary Bettman said in a statement on Thursday afternoon.
The NHL decision comes less than 24 hours after the NBA suspended its schedule “until further notice” in the wake of its first player testing positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.
Bettman cited the NBA’s decision as a factor in suspending the NHL season.
“It now seems more likely that some member of the NHL community would test positive at some point,” Bettman said. “It is no longer appropriate to try to continue to play games at this time.”
