Donovan Mitchell after coronavirus diagnosis: People ‘need to behave responsibly’

Donovan Mitchell tested positive for coronavirus. So, Jazz players grumbled about Rudy Gobert – who also tested positive for coronavirus – being careless in the locker room by touching people and their belongings. We’d already seen Gobert’s recklessness with the media.

In a message of gratitude, Mitchell left room for interpretation.


Mitchell’s caption contains no direct mention of Gobert, a teammate also suffering from illness. But it’s impossible to overlook Mitchell saying people “need to behave responsibly both for their own health and for the well being of those around them.”

Fair or not, that seems directed at Gobert.

Either way, it’s a good message for all of us.
