We needs more news like this around the world during these most troubling of times. About three weeks after testing positive for the coronavirus (COVID-19), Utah Jazz stars Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell have been cleared.

It was back on March 11 that Gobert’s positive test for the illness sparked the NBA suspending its season. Just a short while later, Mitchell himself tested positive.

As the virus continues to spread around the United States at an alarming clip, Gobert was seen as patient zero around the NBA world. Other stars have since also tested positive.

At the very least, the two players who initially found themselves fighting this virus have now been cleared. That’s great news.
