Raptors who travelled to Utah for game vs. Jazz test negative for COVID-19

All COVID-19 tests for the Toronto Raptors have come back negative with one person's test result still pending.

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.
