On Wednesday night, the NBA announced that games would be suspended indefinitely due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The decision came following the news that Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert had contracted the virus. It was later revealed that Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell had also tested positive. On Thursday, it was reportedly decided that the suspension would be for a minimum of 30 days.

That, combined with the NCAA’s decision to cancel March Madness, means we’re going to be without basketball for quite some time.

It’s safe to say that everyone who plays in the NBA has some strong feelings on the matter. A few Golden State Warriors players shared their thoughts on social media, covering a wide range of sentiments. Check it out:

Like always, we’ll keep you updated if any new information comes out regarding the season.

As a reminder, the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is asking people to:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
