Gobert never entered the Peake, and was reportedly at a hotel during the game.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski with ESPN, Utah Jazz star Donovan Mitchell is another player who has tested positive for COVID-19.

Wojnarowski says players on the team said Gobert “had been careless in the locker room, touching other players and their belongings.”
