It's been a wild night in the NBA. After increasing concerns about the coronavirus outbreak, the league was considering several measures to ensure the safety of the players and fans.

But after one of their players tested positive for Coronavirus right before tipoff, the scheduled game between the Jazz and Thunder was canceled and it was only moments later that the league announced the entire season would be postponed.

We all know the reaction from the fans and media but what about the players? How did they respond to finding out their season was done?

Devin Booker found out on Twitch and his reaction was recorded live.

For others, took to Twitter to express their shock and disbelief.

There is a lot of concern within the community about the virus in general but also about all of those who might've been exposed.

The NBA has experienced a number of hurdles this season, including the China controversy, the tragic death of Kobe and Gianna Bryant, and a hit in overall television ratings.

This latest pandemic is a bigger threat than all of them and it will likely yield the biggest consequences.
