Toronto Raptors, staff to go into self-isolation due to possible coronavirus exposure

The Toronto Raptors players, coaches and staff have been advised to go into self-isolation for 14 days on Friday.

The news comes after the National Basketball Association (NBA) suspended its season after a Utah Jazz player has “preliminarily” tested positive for COVID-19 on Wednesday.

“The test result was reported shortly prior to the tip-off of tonight’s game between the Jazz and Oklahoma City Thunder at Chesapeake Energy Arena,” the NBA said in a statement shared Wednesday evening.

“At that time, tonight’s game was cancelled. The affected player was not in the arena.”

The Raptors played the Jazz on Monday.
