Gobert was the first NBA player to test positive for the virus, which caused the league to suspended the ongoing 2019-20 season. Mitchell tested positive a day later. According to reports, Gobert had been careless in the locker room and had touched his teammates and their belongings. He was also seen touching reporters' mics while joking about the virus.

His carelessness had reportedly frustrated his teammates. In a report by The Athletic, it was stated that their relationship 'does not appear salvageable' as Mitchell is reluctant to fix what 'might have been broken'. On April 12, Gobert addressed the issue and stated that things between him and Mitchell were fine no matter what people said. Gobert apologised for his behaviour via social media. Both Mitchell and Gobert have since been cleared of coronavirus.
