So far, only Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell have tested positive for Coronavirus.

While it's not known where they caught it from, COVID-19 has made its way all around the globe -- including San Fransisco, where Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors call home.

“We all were very concerned that maybe he had the coronavirus. And that’s why our team doctors were very, very much on the case,” the Warriors coach said.

“I felt guilty because he had played in the Toronto game. And then the next day we went to open for that march. Some meetings, and I … So when he was sick the next day I thought, “Oh, man.” You know, I needed to send Steph home. He hadn’t been sick the day before, but it was a big day, with him coming back and expending all that energy and emotion in the game.

It's good that Curry was spared, but situation is still a long way away from being over.
