After the unprecedented and shocking announcement that the NBA would be suspending its season, the Detroit Pistons were advised to place themselves under quarantine for the next 14 days or so.
This was a result from the Pistons playing Rudy Gobert and the Utah Jazz on Saturday, March 7th. Gobert was tested positive for Coronavirus prior to his game against the Oklahoma City Thunder on March 11th. The NBA immediately postponed the game, and proceeded to suspend the season afterwards.
The Coronavirus has caused fear worldwide, as it’s been a truly unexpected and unprecedented situation. On behalf of POP, we’d like to wish you all a safe time in avoiding the virus by taking the necessary hygiene measures. We’re saddened to see the NBA season go, but we understand that this was in the best interest of player safety. Thank you for reading, and we look forward to providing you with content during the NBA hiatus.
