Donovan Mitchell of the Utah Jazz is the second NBA player to test positive for the Coronavirus.
The 23-year-old shooting guard took to Instagram to express his gratitude for the outpouring of support and he encouraged everyone to learn more about the virus and to take precautions to protect their health.
Thanks to everyone who has been reaching out since hearing the news about my positive test. We are all learning more about the seriousness of this situation and hopefully people can continue to educate themselves and realize that they need to behave responsibly both for their own health and for the well being of those around them. I appreciate the authorities in Oklahoma who were helpful with the testing process and everyone from the @utahjazz who have been so supportive. I am going to keep following the advice of our medical staff and hope that we can all come together and be there for each other and our neighbors who need our help❤️?
