After Utah Jazz's centre Rudy Gobert tested positive for COVID-19, the NBA suspended its ongoing 2019-20 season. As a result, MLB, NHL. MLS and NCAA also cancelled or postponed their seasons. People have been advised to stay at home and practice social distancing, which included NBA players who now have ample free time on their hand. Many players like Ja Morant and Trae Young have taken to social media after the NBA suspension, expressing how much they miss the game.

Though it has been less than a week after the NBA suspension, Memphis Grizzlies star rookie Ja Morant made sure everyone knows how much he misses NBA. On his TikTok account, the player posted a video of himself doing pregame introductions, in full uniform from his home. Ja Morant added a text saying 'when you missing the season' to his video.
NBA players with coronavirus? In case you missed it, after Jazz's Rudy Gobert tested positive on last Wednesday, his teammate Donovan Mitchell tested positive a day later. As of now, Gobert, Mitchell and Detroit Pistons Christian Wood are the three NBA players with coronavirus. The Pistons played against the Jazz, which could be the reason why Wood was infected.
