Almost 12 hours after the NBA announced it would be suspending the season due to Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert testing positive for coronavirus, the Washington Wizards released a statement saying players, coaches, and basketball operations personnel have been advised to self-quarantine for three to four days. Any player or staff member who exhibits flu-like symptoms will be tested for COVID-19.
