Utah had been one of the luckiest teams so far this season and managed to avoid major disruptions to their team through Health and Safety Protocols, but now they have two players absent: Australian Joe Ingles also entered the protocols. on Tuesday.

The other 29 teams had a player offside for COVID-19 at some point in the past three weeks during this outbreak, many of them placing more than 10 players on that list.

Gobert was at the center of the COVID-19 outbreak in 2020, and it made headlines when, just days before testing positive, he placed his hands on reporters’ voice recorders and microphones before leaving the room. .

“That he came from a good intention,” Gobert said he wanted people to know about the incident. “It was the first day we found out that the media weren’t going to be able to interview us, right next to us, and, you know, we obviously didn’t know as much as we do now, and I just knew that to try and cheer up the story a bit. state of mind. It was, of course, if I could go back in time, I wouldn’t. ”

Days later he tested positive and the season was suspended. Two years later, the league is seeing an increase in cases as many franchises struggle just to have enough players available to adapt. Teams can sign players under the difficulty exception: the difficulty exemption is a temporary spot on the roster that allows teams to exceed the 15-man roster limit in times of need (multiple players are out due to injury or illness ), but the signatures are only temporary until they again have enough players to adapt.

Gobert is averaging 15.5 points and 15.1 rebounds in 37 games so far this season.

Utah (28-10) will face the Raptors in Toronto on Friday.
