Members of the Toronto Raptors who travelled with the team to Utah to face the Jazz have tested negative for COVID-19, the team announced Friday.
Results for one additional person associated with the Raptors are pending.
Toronto emphasized that these results will not change its current protocols involving self-quarantine and practising social distancing.
The tests were performed after news surfaced that Jazz centre Rudy Gobert — who the Raptors played Monday — tested positive for the virus. Since then, Jazz star Donovan Mitchell has tested positive as well.
Gobert’s positive test results began a sequence of events that ultimately led to the NBA deciding to suspend their season as a means of helping to stem the spread of the novel coronavirus.
